The Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan is still having problems after last week’s earthquake and tsunami and there is a lot of fear about radiation spreading beyond Japan. Singapore is not immune to the fears.
So much so that the National Environment Agency (NEA) in Singapore had to release a statement stating that there were no abnormal levels in the radiation levels in Singapore. Frankly I think the public is unduly worried about nothing. Singapore is so far away from Japan even if there is a nuclear explosion there, the chances of it reaching Singapore and causing harm to us is so small I think I have a better chance of hitting Toto first!
So people in Singapore; stop sending text messages and emails about carrying umbrella and wearing long-sleeve shirts. You are nothing but fear-mongers.
