WHO: Japan taking right measures to protect people

GENEVA - Japan is taking the right measures to protect its population from radioactivity, including evacuations, the World Health Organisation said on Tuesday.
Japan has not asked the WHO to send experts in radiation contamination, but the UN agency's network of experts is on standby, spokesman Gregory Hartl said.
"So far the Japanese have taken all the necessary measures, evacuation, sheltering and prepositioning stocks of potassium iodide," Hartl told Reuters in Geneva. "These seem to be the public health measures generally agreed upon for the level of exposure that exists at the moment."
