Philippine Cesium activity Update

As a reminder, it was this PhilStar article released last Friday that had me concerned enough to promptly contact the PNRI.  Apparently, the following statement in that article - "Detected were 47 micro-becquerels per cubic meter of iodine-131, 2.6 Bq/m3 of cesium-134, and 3.1 Bq/m3 of cesium-137" -  is just another misprint.  These values should have been stated in micro-becquerels.  This is the second misquoting of radiation values in a week out of PhilStar.  They need to be more careful.
