Fukushima worker confesses “There is nothing left that we could do”

This Fukushima worker (Twitter account Happy20790) tweets useful information daily.
On 3/11, he was right at the plant, had water of the spent fuel pool over his protecting clothes.
When reactor 3 exploded, he was in reactor 2.

Though his tweets are sometimes biased, he basically tries to be neutral.

Remember the previous post “Tepco reduced 60% of the sub contract workers at Fukushima plants”

He explained the truth behind it all.

In short, he says Tepco started reducing the number of workers because they can not do anything for the reactors anymore. Even though they stock lots of workers, there is no clue to do something most important.

He explains, the next thing to do is to check the state of container vessels pressure vessels, define the actual point of the leakage of contaminated water, and action to stop the leakage, but there is zero plan / idea how to manage it.

The interiors of the buildings are extremely radioactive and nobody can officially go into reactor 3 (though the helmet of the worker was recorded in the video taken by the robot). They can never go into the basement floor of the reactors either. The only thing they can do is to analyze the gas from inside of the container vessels.

Thus nothing can be done by human anymore. They can only clean debris, take away broken operation floor, maintain the water purifying system, setting new tanks etc..
