The animated map above shows the radioactive cloud that moved through Europe following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster on 26 April 1986. The Chernobyl accident remains the worst nuclear accident in history and is one of only two events classified as a “level 7 major accident” (the other being the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan).
Overall, the initial explosion killed 2 people, with 28 more firemen and employees dying as a result of acute radiation syndrome over the coming months.
Estimates of the total number of deaths caused by the release of radiation vary widely from a low of 4,000 in a UN study up to 200,000 according to Greenpeace.
