4 September 2021

Various media sources have disseminated information about the nuclear accident and radiation. In addition to through television, newspapers, and magazines, information about the recent outbreak of new coronavirus infections has also been transmitted via the Internet and social networking sites through smartphones and PCs. It is common for something that happened a few minutes ago to spread around the world in an instant.

 As a result, the speed and diversity of information has been enhanced, and we are now able to obtain a variety of information instantly. On the other hand, as was the case with the nuclear power plant accident and radiation, there is so much information flying around that it has become difficult to know what is right and what is not.
