In Ota ku Tokyo, 5 schools honestly confessed they have hot spots under the gutters.
It was from 0.32 ~ 1.01 uSv/h.
The only thing they could do was to cover the place with a blue sheet.(Source)
In Chernobyl, 0.09 uSv/h → Children started having symptoms. (near radiation level as westen Tokyo)
0.16 uSv/h → Adults got leukemia within 5 years. (near radiation level as Adachiku)
0.232 uSv/h → Mandatory evacuation area in Cheronobyl. (near radiation level as Asakusa or Tokyo disney land)
We mustn’t forget the fact that the treatment of Soviet was not enough. They caused huge consequence. Their treatment was a failure.
However, current Japan is in a way worse than the Soviet response.
When we apply the limit of Chernobyl to Tokyo, all the Tokyo citizens and people around the area must have evacuated.
Still it would cause worse consequence than Chernobyl.
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.
