We would like to correct the content of the follow-up information No.3 of an alarm indicating high radiation dose went off at the continuous dust monitor installed in front of the Main Anti-earthquake Building at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station today (On August 12) as follows.
After revision: "Contamination level of 10 people who were found to be contaminated was lower than the screening level (40Bq/cm2), which makes possible for them to exit the Entrance Control Building. However, wiping of the contaminated bodies was conducted just in case, and they leaved the Entrance Control Building at 2:13 PM. The largest amount of contamination of the 10 people after wiping was 6.9Bq/cm2."
Before revision: "Since wiping of the contaminated bodies of 10 people was conducted, and the contamination level was confirmed to be below the internal operation management value*2 (4Bq/cm2), they leaved the Entrance Control Building at 2:13 PM on the same day."
We deeply apologize for the mistake.
The details of the incident will be provided at the regular press conference to be held this evening.
