The Great East Japan Earthquake hit Fukushima Prefecture on March 11, 2011, just over 3 years ago and it continues to affect our lives. In Fukushima, many people are confirmed dead or still missing due to the earthquake and/or tsunami. Additional “disaster-related deaths” have been attributed to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) accident. Mortality among the institutionalized elderly rates after the NPP accident were exceptionally high during the first 3 months, and persisted at a lower level for 9 months, in comparison with similar periods before the accident. This study demonstrates the great impact of evacuation on mortality of institutionalized elderly, excluding inpatients. We need to pay special attention to evacuation of the elderly, regardless of whether voluntary or forced.

@subschneider @NBCNews No one may have died directly from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, but there's reason to believe some elderly and ill people did die prematurely after they were forced to evacuate (https://t.co/qkBTfcKyPz).
Further because of the #nuclear accident, several 1000 elderly residents near the #Fukushima nuclear power plant died during the forced evacuation. https://t.co/YvNRHU0tpt
