I was reading min- ami- soma while hoping max- ami- soma:
Kyohei Takahashi, the 72-year-old head doctor at a hospital in Minamisoma, a mostly abandoned city some 25 kilometers north of the plant is still at his post though fewer than 10 of his 25 staff remain, and many of his patients were evacuated to reduce their potential exposure to radiation.
The hospital now relies on donations of instant noodles and curry from volunteers and Japanese soldiers to serve those who come looking for care.
Some of them feel panicked; others have stopped talking, he says, with all of them worrying about friends and family, including some who were likely swept away by Japan’s March 11 tsunami.
“What kind of doctor would I be if I fled over something like this?”
