A state-run newspaper in a Chinese province bordering North- Korea published a list of tips on Wednesday for how civilians can protect themselves in the event of nuclear attack.The article comes as tensions soar over on the Korean Peninsula over Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions. A full page illustrated advisory in the Jilin Daily instructed readers to close their doors and windows and thoroughly wash their belongings to minimize radioactive impact.”Intercontinental missiles could hit any corner of the world,” the newspaper said.
The Jilin daily used a colorful comic Wednesday to tell readers to wear a mask sand take Iodine tablets to prevent radioactive Iodine from collecting in their thyroid glands.To remove radioactive contamination from the body, one should vigorously wash garments and swab the ears, nose and the mouth the paper advised.
But on the other hand, China developed the new missile -Dongfeng-41, next generation multi nuclear war head intercontinental ballistic missile ability to hit targets “anywhere in the world” from their site. Last week, Pyongyang fired an intercontinental ballistic missile that it said could hit anywhere on the US main land.
While seeing the details, the safety has no sense and the word “Safety” is the state of being protected from harm or other non-desirable outcomes. It can also refer to the control of recognized hazards in order to to achieve an acceptable level of risk.
