Fukushima: Birth in the No-go Zone this Week

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Tokyo – Exactly one year ago, on April 22nd, the Japanese government had announced the frontier of the 20km No-go Zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. This weekend, there will be a Memorial for the animals left behind on Sunday in Miharu city.

Tomioka city – In the Red Zone this week, Mr. Matsumura has been busy helping a cow to give birth to a baby-cow. Three days ago, a fragile looking, “very skinny” female gave birth with so much difficulty, that Mr. Matsumura had to give her a hand.

Mr. Matumura was unreachable on his mobile phone all day until 9PM today, which is a matter of concern for anyone who know where he lives, and alone. “The baby and the mother survived,” he said. “However, the baby looked so bad and ill. Today, (Friday) I had to bring it outside the 20km zone to a veterinarian hospital in Miharu town,” he said on the phone. The baby has received infusion milk to be fed, today. “When I left the animal hospital, the baby-cow was sleeping in an “electrical warming blanket”.

The doctor had also told him that the baby might not survive tonight (Friday night.)
