The radiation level briefly topped 2 milisievert at the plant, its operator Tokyo Electric Power Co.
Otros requisitos, entre ellos los de la Agencia Internacional de Energia Atomica, senalan que la dosis admisible de radiacion para cada persona no puede ser superior a los 100 milisieverts por espacio de cinco anos.
