On Jan. 16, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention will be holding a briefing called “Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation”.

Due to the escalating tension between the United States and North Korea, concerns of nuclear weapons being used are on the rise. So apparently, the CDC is trying to get ahead of everything in an attempt to educate the public on what to do just in case nuclear weapons are used for real.

On CDC’s website explaining why they are holding the briefing it says, “ "While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps.”

While tension between the U.S. and N. Korea has been on and off again for a long time, Trump being the current president definitely brings even more concerns. Of course, he’s still out here tweeting recklessly about sensitive information, which makes it hard to have any real faith in our government when it comes to public safety.

CDC holding this briefing is cool but it may just be producing even more unease across the nation.
