The Second Anniversary of the Fukushima Disaster: how bad was it?

From the left-wing Democracy Now, Amy Goodman introduces her report on the 2nd anniversary of Fukushima as follows:
AMY GOODMAN: We go now to Japan, which is marking the second anniversary of one of the world’s worst atomic disasters. It was March 11, 2011, when a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake triggered a devastating tsunami that struck Japan’s northeast coast. It left more than 20,000 dead or missing. [Emph. added]
So, Fukushima was the "world's worst atomic disaster" and left "20,000 dead or missing."  Not quite.  Did you catch the verbal slight of hand?  Ms.  Goodman is pulling a fast one.  The 20,000 dead are due to the all-natural Gaia-approved tsunami and earthquake.

How many people actually died because of the "world's worst atomic disaster"?
