Hi Friend --

When news outlets talk about nuclear weapons, they rarely talk concretely about their effects on the ground, and what it would mean for healthcare systems to cope with the aftermath of a nuclear bombing. That is why we launched a new report <[link removed]> revealing how hospitals and doctors in ten major cities around the world would be affected by the immediate impact of just a single 100kt nuclear weapon.

The findings in "No Place to Hide: <[link removed]> Nuclear Weapons and the Collapse of Health Care Systems <[link removed]>" are horrifying. In all ten cities, the health care systems would be desperately overwhelmed. 

Read the report <[link removed]>

- Every remaining hospital bed and surviving doctor would suddenly have to accomodate dozens if not hundreds of badly injured patients, while coping with basic utility failures.

- People within 4km in every direction from the detonation point would suffer third-degree burns, but city burn beds in some cities number in the single digits.

- Medical infrastructure would be overwhelmed by many times more new patients in one city in one second than new COVID-19 patients in one day in the entire country at the peak of the pandemic.

This pandemic has shown us all what happens when health care systems collapse. So how can nuclear-armed states and their allies keep relying on these illegal weapons of mass destruction, when it is clear there would be no medical response possible to their use?

We hope you will help us get the word out by sharing this report with your friends, family and network:
