Lethal radiation amounts still detected at crippled Fukushima plant 7yrs after disaster

An inspection of the Fukushima nuclear plant has detected extremely high amounts of radiation, says operator TEPCO. Just an hour of exposure would be lethal.

A remote-controlled inspection detected 42 Sieverts (Sv) per hour of radiation outside the foundations of the crippled Unit 2 of the plant, according to a newly-released report. And that’s a lot, as just one Sv is enough to cause acute radiation syndrome.

Sieverts are used to measure radiation in terms of its potential harm and the cancer risk begins already at the doses of radiation as low as in between 50-100 mSv, the World Health Organization says.
