Half of the students tested showed low levels of cesium 137 contamination.
“Radioactive cesium-137 was detected at below 10 becquerels per kilogram of a student’s weight in 199 students. The substance was also found at from 10 to less than 20 becquerels in 65 students; 20 to less than 30 becquerels in three students; and 30 to below 35 becquerels in one student, the hospital said.”
It is not known if the students became contaminated through breathing in the fallout or if it was ingested with food. The students will receive ongoing checks that should show how fast and in what amounts the cesium is purged from their bodies.
