Tokyo elementary school conceals contamination situation

Elementary schools in Tokyo are concealing the actual contamination situation to parents and decontaminate secretly.

Arakawa ku in Tokyo refused to conduct radiation measurement for 8 months from 311 to early November to say it’s all safe.

They finally measured radiation level in the early November and measured 6.46 μSv/h in an elementary school.

From other places, they also measured high level of radiation such as 3.04 μSv/h from sand pit or 2.57 μSv/h from gutter etc..

Children were let play in extremely radioactive place and touch highly contaminated sand and soil for 8 months.

Additionally, Arakawa local government published the data only on the web and decontaminated secretly.

At the place where they measured 4.45μSv/h, the school staff removed all the soil but the radiation level didn’t get decreased. In the end, they had to pave the place with concrete, but it was all done secretly, parents were not informed of.

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.
