The nearby city of Pripyat was quietly evacuated on April 27, with the authorities not informing residents of the scale of the disaster or the likely health risks from radiation exposure and contamination.
The true cost of the disaster is hard to quantify: 47 people died – mostly plant workers and the firemen who came to their aid, and more than 350,000 people have been relocated. A possible 1 million people are likely to have been exposed to radiation and it is estimated by the World Health Organization that 4,000 deaths may ultimately be attributed to the disaster.
