death toll: 死亡人数
(China Daily) Updated:2005-08-30 15:59

  印度媒体29日报道,在过去的几个月中,脑炎在印度北方邦肆虐,导致250多人死亡。请看报道:

  The death toll from an encephalitis outbreak in northern India passed 250 over the weekend, and the mosquito-borne disease showed little sign of abating, a government official said Monday.

  Officials reported 41 new deaths, raising the three-week death toll to 253.

  The majority of the dead are children. Some 300 people have been hospitalized, many of them in serious condition, D. P. Mishra, joint director of Uttar Pradesh state health services, told The Associated Press.

  文中的"death toll"意思是"死亡人数","toll" refers to suffering, deaths or damage,例如:Independent sources say that the civilian death roll runs into thousands.(独立消息人士说平民死亡人数达数千。

  If something takes a toll/exacts a toll, it causes suffering, death or damage.(造成损失),如:The deepening recession has also taken its toll in the south of the country, where unemployment is rife.(经济不景气的状况越演越烈同样也给国家南部造成了损害,在那里失业盛行。)
