government strives 

What?! They are doing nothing at all.

Streets are as packed as always in Tokyo. The virus is spreading like crazy, but nobody knows the magnitude of it. We are in a total uncontrolled situation.

In my opinion, the key question is not how many people are being tested or not in Japan. The key question is what is the trend of people now being hospitalized because of serious respiratory problems in Japan? Is it increased dramatically over the last 2 weeks or so, or not? If not, it means that probably, and despite our belief or bias caused by what's happening in Italy, it means that the virus here is not spreading.

But again, we don't even have this number now...so, we our blind and incapable of judgment.

Posted in: TEPCO will have to dump radioactive Fukushima water into Pacific, minister says See in context

There is ZERO harm produced by this solution, neither for humans nor fishes nor the environment. The ocean itself is already immensely more radioactive than the water contained in those tanks. People, really, go read what scientists say about this solution and you will be much more relaxed about it. The best nuclear experts in the world are suggesting this solution since years already.

Posted in: Fukushima contaminants found as far north as Alaska's Bering Strait See in context

The newly detected Fukushima radiation was minute. The level of cesium-137, a byproduct of nuclear fission, in seawater was just four-tenths as high as traces of the isotope naturally found in the Pacific Ocean.

Come on, please stop this useless alarmism!
