- Response rate for Fukushima's thyroid check-ups on kids reaches 77 percent
The initial examinations for possible thyroid abnormalities, launched between Oct. 9 and Nov. 13 in several areas of those places most affected by the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant disaster, including the two towns of Namie and Iitate, attracted a 77 percent response rate. Among those, 25 percent were people who had evacuated out of Fukushima Prefecture and traveled back to the prefecture specifically for the check-ups.
Instead of bringing one machine to the evac center, 25% of people who had evacuated are forced to travel back to the radioactive death traps for a medical check-up.
