Japan nuclear crisis: evacuees turned away from shelters

Hundreds of people evacuated from towns and villages close to the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant are being turned away by medical institutions and emergency shelters as fears of radioactive contagion catch on.

Hospitals and temporary refuges are demanding that evacuees provide them with certificates confirming that they have not been exposed to radiation before they are admitted.

The situation at the plant remains critical, with the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency yesterday that radioactive iodine-131 at more than 3,350 times permitted levels has been found in a sample of seawater taken from near the facility.

The water is the most highly contaminated sample taken from the sea and indicates that radiation from the core of one or more of the reactors, where fuel rods have partly melted, is leaking into the Pacific Ocean.

A spokesman for the agency said the radioactivity poses no immediate threat to human health because fishing has been banned close to the plant and iodine will have been “significantly diluted” before it comes into contact with marine species and then enters the food chain for humans.

“Just being forced to live in a shelter causes us anxiety,” Mr Okamura, 49, said. “The institution’s refusal to treat my daughter came as a great shock to us.”

Medical experts have condemned those that are meant to be assisting the evacuees for turning them away. “This is a knee-jerk reaction based on the fear that these people are going to harm you,” said Dr. Robert Gale, a haematologist at Imperial College, London, who is advising the Japanese government on health issues.

“If someone has been contaminated externally, such as on their shoes or clothes, then precautions can be taken, such as by removing those garments to stop the contamination from getting into a hospital,” he told The Daily Telegraph. “That is very easy to do, but unfortunately I’m not surprised this sort of thing is happening.”

The calamities continue in Japan and in other areas of the world. Soon, there will be no Nation that does not find itself in the midst of those natural disasters and calamities that are products of Yahweh’s wrath.

But know this…Yahweh and Christ are awaiting your hearts to turn to them. If you are already in acceptance of the TRUTH of Yahweh, then offer those that are not, the last chance, in this spiritual war this side of Armageddon. Your governments will not bend their knees to Christ’s reign, so they will all be crushed. But this does not have to be any of your fate.
