5. readings are between 20 and 400 millisievert
400 millisievert is 50 times the previously reported highest level of about 8,000 microsievert (after third explosion) and about 250 times the peak level reported on Sunday.

They reconfirmed several times that they are now talking about MILLIsievert.
