As reported earlier, a 400 millisieverts (mSv) per hour radiation dose observed
at Fukushima Daiichi occurred between Units 3 and 4. This is a high dose-level
value, but it is a local value at a single location and at a certain point in
time. The IAEA continues to confirm the evolution and value of this dose rate.
It should be noted that because of this detected value, non-indispensible staff
was evacuated from the plant, in line with the Emergency Response Plan, and that
the population around the plant is already evacuated.
