Hi Steve,
Really good points. I appreciate your analysis and background and tend to agree. I'm new at this.

Here is the reading I did re the Chernobyl accident. There is an awful lot available on the Web supporting all sorts of opinions and view. These two views are probably at polar opposites in stating the facts (unknown to me, of course). Depending on the chosen scope that might be defined to illustrate a POV I tend to go with the IAEA and that POV.

Wikipedia reports from several POV… the views vary a GREAT deal. I assume there are even more varying views from others. I’m going to edit my comment about the 985,000 deaths 

On page 2 this article states that the loss of life occurring between 1986 -2004 totaling 985,000 worldwide can be attributed to the Chernobyl accident.

This video (29 min) probably explains the scope of how that 985,000 was arrived at (always going to be a slant or bias in this sort of reporting):
