The Ministry of Science and Technology rejected the news recently carried by several e-newspapers saying that radioactive cloud from Japan arrived in Vietnam with a high level of radiation that nears the level that can affect the people’s health.

“The information is groundless”, the ministry said on April 9.

The ministry also said that it has found radioactive dusts from the quake-damaged Fukushima reactor explosions in Japan , but the radioactive I-131 and Cs-137 trace level was very low.

It cited reports from the Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute, saying that they are yet to find radioactive from the plant explosion in Vietnam’s sea water as well as abnormal increase in radiation level in Vietnam./.
