3 prisoners died in Abashiri prison only within a month, MOJ “Very unusual”


Death case of Abashiri prison (Hokkaido) is increasing since April of 2012.
7 prisoners have died since 4. 2012, and 3 of them died only in one month of this January.
2 of them died of acute pneumonia just within a week after they had symptoms.

There are 1,200 prisoners in this prison, all of them are male. The prison comments sick prisoners are increasing.

The Ministry of Justice comments this is unusual number, it might be due to the lack of full-time doctor. However, the prison has not had a full-time doctor since 2010, and the death case of 2010 was only 2, it was 0 in 2011.

Outbreak of diseases potentially because of the immune system are reported all around in Japan since last year. The origin of food served in the prison is not clear.

En seulement un mois, 3 prisonniers sont morts dans la prison d’Abashiri. le ministère de la Justice : “Très inhabituel”

Le nombre de cas de décès à la prison d’Abashiri (Hokkaido) augmente depuis avril 2012.
7 prisonniers sont morts depuis avril 2012 et 3 d’entre eux rien qu’en ce mois de janvier.
2 d’entre eux sont morts de pneumonie aiguë en seulement une semaine après le début de leurs symptômes.

Il y a 1 200 prisonniers dans cette prison, tous sont des hommes. La prison dit que le nombre de prisonniers malades est en augmentation.

Le ministère de la Justice trouve ce nombre inhabituel, ce pourrait être du au manque de médecin à temps complet. Or, la prison n’a plus de médecin à temps complet depuis 2010 et le nombre de décès de 2010 n’est que de 2, il y en a eu 0 en 2011.

Les épidémies de maladies peuvent d’autant plus augmenter qu’un affaiblissement des systèmes immunitaires est rapporté dans tout le Japon depuis l’an dernier. L’origine de la nourriture servie à la prison n’est pas claire.

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.
