Chernobyl Radiation Killed People, Plant Life & Animals- But Not Infections In Ticks

QUOTE- "... the uninhabited Chernobyl region has been directly exposed to ionizing radiation for >30 years. ... the current data clearly demonstrated that the prevalence of some zoonotic pathogens were significantly higher in the ixodid ticks from the CEZ [Chernobyl exclusion zone]."

QUOTE about the accident- different source.... "Over the coming days and weeks, 134 servicemen were hospitalized with acute radiation syndrome (ARS), of whom 28 firemen and employees died within months.[9]

Additionally, approximately 14 radiation induced cancer deaths among this group of 134 hospitalized survivors were to follow within the next 10 years.[10] Among the wider population, an excess of 15 childhood thyroid cancer deaths were documented as of 2011.” WIKI
