TOKYO, August 9. Japanese authorities are hiding from the people of the country data on the propagation of radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" in March 2011.
According Lenta.Ru referring to The New York Times, residents of the nearby town of Namie the NPP was not informed about the direction in which the radiation will be distributed.
Assuming that the wind will carry radiation from the power plant to the south, the City decided to evacuate the residents in the area, located north of the station. But the wind blew it in the direction in which the evacuation.
Two months later, the city administration found that the computer system is predicted such a development.
Recall, May 3, the Japanese government acknowledged that concealed the information about the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1". As the head of the secretariat of the Joint Staff at the elimination of the accident, adviser to Prime Minister Goshi Hosono, this was done in order to avoid panic.
In particular, the official Tokyo kept secret for at least five thousand radiation measurements and assessments of the possible spread of radiation after the March events at the Japanese nuclear power plant.
"This position was wrong," — admitted advisor Japanese prime minister. Hosono promised that henceforth all the information about the plant "Fukushima-1" will be released to the public and distributed immediately.
According to the Japanese press, the accident at the nuclear power plant has also shown the inefficiency created by the country's system of collecting data on radiation from nuclear plants and predicting its spread. It was launched in 1987 to develop and maintain such a structure Tokyo has spent more than $ 341 million but the system has been completely put out of action on March 11 when a powerful tsunami, caused by an earthquake destroyed the sources of its energy supply.
Radiation leak from the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" began after the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. Element destroyed hundreds of thousands of buildings, and knocked out the cooling system of reactors, "Fukushima-1". The soil at the plant have been found traces of plutonium, with half-lives of thousands of years. Traces of radioactive substances have been detected in tap water, as well as vegetables, milk and beef from Fukushima prefecture.
Currently, the station continued pumping from the lower areas and drainage water plant with a high content of radioactive substances. At the station, it has accumulated about 87 thousand 500 tons.
Death toll from the catastrophic March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami was a powerful 14,340 people in 12 prefectures. In the lists of missing persons listed 11,889 people from six prefectures.
