Melth monitoring,...National Budget.(END)

Mr.Lochard commented:

hiroki @hirokiharoki
That 20mSv was just estimated dose. Now we can use actuall dose from now on.

Mr.Masato Kino(Cabinet Office, Support Team for Residents Affected by Nuclear Incidents)'s session used '20mSv' limit. It was calculated(estimated) from radiation monitoring posts, etc. Mr.Lochard mentioned that we have real individual data(not just estimation), from each person's dose meters, WholeBodyCounters, and food radiation checkers. We should use the data, instead of just estimations.
