Environment mnistry denies Taishan nuclear power plant leak
China has dismissed reports by US broadcaster CNN about a possible leak at the Taishan nuclear power plant in the southeast of the country. Radiation levels were also not above the limits, the Ministry of Environmental Protection in Beijing announced on Wednesday via WeChat. There was indeed an increase in radioactive radiation. But this was due to damage to a small number of fuel rods, which in turn was not unusual, it said. "Environmental monitoring in the vicinity of the Taishan plant found no abnormal parameters. (...) Showing no leak has occurred at all."
