In that area, winds and fires would kill 50pc of the population and injure another 40pc. Within a 20 mile radius, 50pc of the inhabitants would be killed or injured by thermal radiation and blast pressure. Tens of thousands would suffer severe burn injuries. Medical disaster planning for a nuclear warfare is meaningless." (Benjamin K. Sovacool) This is a bird 's eye view of the disaster, a nuclear bomb can produce.
