Li Benying, director of the Hong Kong Observatory, said on the 9th that the observatory is updating a set of radiation monitoring instruments, which will be placed on the aircraft of the Hong Kong flight service to monitor the radiation level over the Daya Bay nuclear power plant, and is expected to be put into service within a year or two

Li Benying attended a radio festival that day, moving the beam automatically stopped to save the cost of technical communication; At present, the observatory will review the radiation monitoring work in Hong Kong in response to the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident in Japan. It is expected that the impact of the accident on Hong Kong will be very slight

Li Benying said that the Hong Kong Observatory had begun to increase radiation monitoring facilities long before the Daya Bay nuclear power plant was put into operation. Past monitoring results showed that after the Daya Bay nuclear power plant was put into operation, the radiation levels of air, sea water and food in Hong Kong did not change significantly, and the measured values were all radiation existing in the natural environment

Li Benying understood the public's concern about the Fukushima nuclear accident, and stressed that even if the radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power plant leaked and floated to Hong Kong in the early days of reform and opening up, the remaining amount of radiation would be extremely weak, It will not affect human health, so citizens need not worry too much. The observatory will hold lectures and other related activities to strengthen public awareness of radiation.
