Blood transfusion bus can't get close to Fukushima2

3 prefectures of disaster area are suffering from the shortage of blood transfusion.
Especially in Fukushima, though some people are still living, blood transfusion bus can’t come because radiation level is too high and people evacuated. From alerting area in Fukushima, more than 60,000 people have moved out.
From last March to December, the donor decreased by 30% compared to last year.
In Miyagi, it decreased by 21%, in Iwate, it decreased by 18% as well.
Basically, blood is not transfused from other prefectures but they have to depend on other prefectures now.
None of the local governments have depended on other prefectures for blood transfusion for this long.

According to Fukushima red cross blood center, last April, the blood transfusion decreased by 96.3 % because the bus couldn’t get in.
Though it picked up in May, it decreased by 30% , 76,859people from March to December.
Fukushima local government have to depend on other prefectures for 1,000 people’s blood. Miyagi local government depends on other prefectures for 1,000 people, Iwate local government depends on other prefectures for 300 people because the shuttle bus decreased along the coastal area.

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.
