Radiation concerns: 113 sought medical advice here - Straits Times Singapore #TEAMFOLLOWBACK

A total of 113 people have sought medical advice from Singapore hospitals on radiation concerns since the Japanese tsunami on March 11. The patients, most of whom suspected they had been exposed to radiation after visiting Japan, showed up at the emergency departments of restructured hospitals here for check-ups, according to Ministry of Health (MOH) figures. At the hospitals, they were asked about their travel history and checked for symptoms such as unexplained nausea, vomiting, fever or diarrhoea. They were also given a blood test and scanned for radiation. The results of the check-up - which costs between $80 and $90 - are known within one or two hours.
