Forbidden beta-transitions caused by the radiative correction are investigated on the basis of the effective Hamiltonian which we derived, as presented in the previous paper, using the covariant formalism. The ultraviolet divergence inherent in the virtual photon processes has been removed with the aid of the regulator method. The results are compared with those described by other authors with the use of the non-covariant perturbation theory.
