>notre dame 'still fragile'
the rector of notre dame cathedral says the paris landmark is still so fragile that there's a "50% chance" the structure might not be saved, because scaffolding installed before the april fire is threatening the vaults of the gothic monument. 法国巴黎圣母院院长近日表示，圣母院大教堂目前仍然很脆弱，由于今年四月火灾前在建筑内部安装的脚手架可能毁坏这座哥特式历史遗迹的拱顶，其结构有"50%的几率"无法保全。
monsignor patrick chauvet said restoration work isn't likely to begin until 2021. 院长帕特里克·肖维指出，正式的修复工作可能要到2021年才能开始。
"today it is not out of danger," he said. "it will be out of danger when we take out the remaining scaffolding." 他表示："(大教堂)目前还很危险，只有完全拆除剩余的脚手架，它才能脱离危险。"
chauvet estimated it would take another three years after that to make it safe enough for people to re-enter the cathedral, but that the full restoration will take longer. 肖维预估，需要再花3年的时间才能保证人们再次安全进入教堂，而完全修复则会花费更长时间。
french president emmanuel macron has said he wants it rebuilt by 2024, when paris hosts the olympics, but experts have questioned whether that time frame is realistic.法国总统马克龙曾表示他希望教堂能够在2024年完成重建，那时巴黎将主办奥运会，但专家们质疑这一时间安排是否现实。
