BANGKOK, 16 March 2011 (NNT) – The Ministry of Public Health is now monitoring imports of Japanese food for fear of radioactive contamination in the wake of the explosions at nuclear power plants after the deadly quake and tsunami attack in Japan.

Permanent Secretary for Public Health Medical Doctor Paijit Warachit stated that his ministry and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment would join hands in monitoring leaked radioactivity, which might come to Thailand via the air and food.

The Permanent Secretary said that the measure was not to exacerbate difficulties of Japan but to ensure safety for people.
