According to the latest disclosure by Tokyo authorities on Wednesday, "water at a purification plant for the capital of 13 million people had 210 becquerels of radioactive iodine -- more than twice the safety level for infants." While the threshold itself may not be all that material, it merely reinforces the perception that either the government is covering up something far more sinister, or the authorities have lost control of the situation, with incremental bad news creeping up every single day. As a result, as we have claimed from the very beginning, one of the world's most populous cities, located just 150 miles away from what may soon be the next Chernobyl per prior whistleblower disclosure, could likely soon be a ghost town with dire implications for the Japanese and world economy.
More from Bloomberg:
Tokyo authorities said city tap water may be unsafe for infants while Japan’s government sought to assure people that radiation levels detected in the food chain following a nuclear accident don’t pose a health threat.
Radioactive iodine levels taken yesterday at a treatment facility in Katsushika ward were double the recommended limit for babies, a city official said in a televised briefing today. The water would pose a health risk if drunk over the long-term, such as a year, he said. Tokyo’s population is estimated to be about 13 million people.
