Fukushima workers attacked by norovirus outbreak

52 Fukushima workers belonging to Tepco’s subcontract companies had diarrhea and vomiting.

They found norovirus from 3 of them.

According to Tepco, 12/15 AM, sub-contract workers had diarrhea and vomiting on the bus from their hotel to Fukushima plants.
Still one of them is in the hospital.
They stayed in different hotels. Tepco suspects it’s from norovirus.
All of them were involved in the construction of the tank for radioactive waste.

An actual Fukushima worker tweeted like this below:

It’s likely to infect through the mask actually. As a matter of fact, one person got infected this time. That’s why they sterilized all the masks. They also sterilized the path and the car to come from the hotels to the plants as well. Norovirus can’t be sterilized by alcohol.
