This is Dr. Keiichi Nakagawa, Associate Professor for the Department of Radiology at the University of Tokyo Hospital. He is seen here on March 16, 2011 giving an emergency press conference to foreign media at the Foreign Press Center in Tokyo. The main topic of this hastily arranged briefing was the health effects from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station accident caused by the massive March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. According to Nakagawa, current radiation levels caused by leaks from the Fukushima accident are posing no health risks to the public and only dangerous to workers who are battling to contain the reactors. The Japanese government has been concerned that foreign media reports about this nuclear accident has been incorrect or distorted and most likely the reason this heavy hitter was sent in to give an official statement.
