The Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) has ended the emergency radiation monitoring following the nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), saying the test had no impact on China.

DPRK announced on Jan. 6 that it had tested a hydrogen bomb. The MEP then launched its second-highest level of emergency response, monitoring radiation levels along the country's northeast border.

The checks found radiation to be within the normal range, and no artificial radioactive nuclides were detected in air samples, according to the MEP.

Routine monitoring of air, water, soil and fallout will continue, the MEP said. Endi
