Rush Transcript Excerpt
Koide: The story is that Tepco is carrying out [UPDATE: Translation appears to be more like 'has carried out', not 'is carrying out'] reinforcement project to prevent spent fuel pool from falling apart.
However, the status of the work site is so contaminated that it is not a place where workers can work at ease.
I’m worried very much about how far they’ve been able to properly complete that construction.
I’m also praying that there wont be a number of large aftershocks.
Improved audio coming soon
