03/21/2011 Journalists again scare the tourists in Hainan: buying of salt due to radiation in Japan

 

starting from March 17, 2011 in Hainan media was reported about mass buying of salt in the shops, in the cities of Hainan Province, especially in the shops of Sanya City. According to press reports from Hainan Province, salt is bought due to the accident at the nuclear power plant in FUKushima, Japan, in this case appeared in the press, even photos of empty shelves in stores and was informed, that the price of salt has increased by 8 times due to its scarcity. At first we did not attach any importance, since FUKushima nuclear power plant is located about 4000 kilometers from the Hainan Island and radiation can not reach Hainan Island due to an accident at nuclear power plants in FUKushima, Japan. However, as is the case with flooding in October 2010, the news from the media of Hainan Province began to translate and reproduce foreign media only this time the media in the English language, than scared many tourists from the United States and Western Europe. In particular, one of the websites in English about the island of Hainan, published photo of empty shelves in the shop of Sanya City, where there is no salt, and this foto was placed on the front page of this website as the most important news from the province of Hainan, with the inscription under the photo reads: "Japan nuclear fallout fears spark panic buying of salt in Sanya"(see photo number 2 above), in addition, one of the most famous magazines in the U.S. - "The Wall Street Journal" put the photo (see photo number 1 above), which depicts the inhabitants of China, which panic buying up the salt. We contacted the administration of the most famous among foreign tourists store of Sanya City (which is located 30 meters from McDonald's) and they were told, that salt is freely available and at the old price- 1.50 yuan per packet of salt and was not panic buying of salt! The official media of Hainan Island in English and Russian languages, was not reported on this theme and among tourists began spreading rumors about the most improbable of radiation. Russian media have not yet scare the tourists in Hainan, as it to make the media in English. So we had to release this article to refute all the rumors and tell all the tourists and foreign residents of Hainan Island, that is not any threat of radiation to Hainan Island, due to the accident at the nuclear power plant in FUKushima, Japan, the background radiation is monitored in the cities of Hainan Province 24 hours a day and its indicators are normal. Thus, radiation is not threatening any people of Hainan Island! Therefore, you are welcome to rest on Hainan Island!
