71.Let’s picture a huge public gathering – like the hajj to Mecca. Think of the World Cup, the Olympics, or a rock
concert. When thousands or even millions of people get together, what will be the biggest health concern? Traditionally,
doctors and public health officials were most concerned about the spread of infectious diseases. Robert Steffen, a
professor of travel medicine at the University of Zurich, says that infectious diseases are still a concern, but injuries are a
bigger threat at so-called mass gatherings.
According to Professor Steffen, children and older people have the highest risk of injury or other health problems at
mass gathering events. Children are at more risk of getting crushed in stampedes, while older people are at higher risk of
heat stroke and dying from extreme heat.
Stampedes at mass gatherings have caused an estimated seven thousand deaths over the past thirty years. The design of
an area for mass gathering can play a part. There may be narrow passages or other choke points that too many people try
to use at once. The mood of a crowd can also play a part. Organizers of large gatherings need to avoid creating conditions
that might lead to stampedes and heat stroke.
So what advice does Professor Steffen have for people attending a large gathering? First, get needed vaccinations
before traveling. Then, stay away from any large mass of people as much as possible. Also, be careful with alcohol and
drugs, which can increase the risk of injuries. 【題組】
71 Which of the following would be the most appropriate title for this passage?

76.The historic center of Hoi An looks just how Vietnam is supposed to look: narrow lanes, wooden shop houses, a
charming covered bridge. Hoi An’s well preserved architecture –from the 16th century onward, the harbor town attracted
traders from China, India, Japan and as far as Holland and Portugal – led United Nations Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to deem it a World Heritage site, praising it as an outstanding demonstration of cultural
blending over time in an international commercial port.
When Hoi An was first recognized as a World Heritage site in 1999, the city welcomed 160,300 tourists. In 2011, 1.5
million tourists arrived. Today, tour buses crowd the edge of Hoi An’s old town. Tourists flood the historic center.
Hundreds of nearly identical storefronts – providing food and selling the same tailored clothes, shoes and lanterns –
colonize the heritage structures. To squeeze tourism revenue, a hospital has been forced to move out. Its building, built in
the 19th century, now houses a tailoring business.
While local government officials and business owners view changes in the old town positively, tourists are beginning
to notice the loss of authenticity in Hoi An. A 2008 UNESCO report sounded the alarm that “unless tourism management
can be improved, the economic success generated by tourism will not be sustainable in the long term.”
【題組】76 What is the main idea of the passage?
(A)Sustainable tourism revenue in the long run should not be a concern of the government.
(B)Hoi An should sell its old town to a modern tailoring business to increase economic revenue.
(C)UNESCO should urge Hoi An to build more narrow lanes, wooden houses, and covered bridges.
(D)Tourism management of historic sites should put a focus on protecting their authenticity and integrity.
