Fukushima worker urgently hospitalized / Tepco “mild symptom of dehydration”

According to Tepco, a Fukushima worker claimed the physical malfunction.

He was’s recovered by drip infusion, but the hospital where he was transported diagnosed him with a “mild symptom of dehydration”.

About 3 hours before this incident, 10 workers were found severely contaminated due to the “mist” to prevent heat stroke.

Tepco’s press release is below,

At around 3:10 PM today (on August 12), an associated company worker, who was taking a rest at resting place of the registration center at Fukushima Daiichi NPS, complained of his bad condition (headache, nausea), so he received an aid such as drip infusion, etc. at emergency medical room of the Entrance Control Building. However, since no sign of recovery was found, a doctor was judged that he needs to be transported urgently to the hospital, and an ambulance was called around 4:00 PM on the same day.

As a result of medical examination at the hospital, he was diagnosed with a mild symptom of dehydration. Currently, he is on a drip and will return home soon after a sign of recovery is found.





Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

Un travailleur de Fukushima hospitalisé en urgence / Tepco : “symptôme de déshydratation légère”


Selon Tepco, un travailleur de Fukushima s’est présenté pour problème physique.

Il a été soigné avec une infusion de gouttes mais l’hôpital où il a été transporté a diagnostiqué un “symptôme de déshydratation légère”.
Environ 3 heures avant cet incident, 10 travailleurs avaient été gravement contaminés par la “bruine” d’un brumisateur servant à prévenir des coups de chaleur. (cf. La borne de surveillance des poussières s’est déclenchée ; l’appareil brumisateur a probablement contaminé des travailleurs de Fukushima)
Le communiqué de presse de Tepco est le suivant :

Aujourd’hui (12 août) vers 15:10, un travailleur sous-traitant qui se reposait dans le local social du centre d’enregistrement de Fukushima Daiichi NPS, s’est plaint de son état de santé(migraine, nausée), il a donc reçu une aide sous forme d’infusion de gouttes, etc. dans l’infirmerie d’urgence du bâtiment du contrôle des entrées. Cependant, comme aucun signe d’amélioration ne se manifestait, un docteur a jugé qu’il avait besoin d’être transporté d’urgence à l’hôpital et une ambulance a été appelée vers 16:00 ce même jour.

Le résultat de l’examen médical de l’hôpital est un diagnostic de symptôme de déshydratation légère. Il est actuellement perfusé et rentrera chez lui dès que son état s’améliorera.


Ce n’est pas la vérité parce que tout le monde y croit. C’est la vérité parce que c’est cohérent et irréfutable.

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.
