Breaking News: The third dead worker [septic shock]

7 minutes before this article was posted, Tepco finally announced the reason why the Fukushima worker died (The official third dead person) at a press conference. He was in his 50s.

The person died of septic shock caused by retroperitoneal abscess.

The point is that he died of septic shock, which is the typical symptom of the immune system trouble.

It can be caused by HIV or reduction of WBC (white blood cells) because of chemotherapeutic measures or radiation exposure.

It had been concealed in the name of “privacy” but when they got the approval of the family, they finally announced it.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
