How to stoke a nuclear panic

These are headlines from two of our online newspapers this morning:

Japan confirms first two deaths at Fukushima as engineers fail to seal radioactive leak into ocean

-Mail Online

Two Japan nuclear plant workers found dead

-Independent Online

Alarming stuff eh?

But both of these workers died as a result of the tsunami.

Three weeks ago.

As did almost 20,000 others who did not work in the nuclear industry.
