Yesterday was World AIDS Day. An international event that goes back to 1988. It`s held every year on December 1. And it`s aimed to raise awareness about AIDS, a quiet immune deficiency syndrome, an HIV, human immunodeficiency virus, which causes AIDS.


Organizers of World AIDS Day estimate that 34 million people worldwide are living with HIV and that 35 million people have died from it.


AZUZ: World AIDS day raises money to fight the disease and to educate people about it. Medical treatments have come a long way since the 1980s, allowing people to survive indefinitely with HIV, still it hasn`t gone away, and symbolic red ribbons are worn as reminders and in remembrance of AIDS victims.

世界艾滋病日会筹集资金用于研究艾滋病病毒并教育人们如何正确对待艾滋病。自20世纪80年代医学研究就已经开始了长期研究道路,尝试各种帮助人类 摆脱艾滋病的方法,但是目前仍没有有效的解决办法,艾滋病患者仍然不断死去,人们采用红丝带作为艾滋病日的象征来纪念艾滋病去世患者。

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Just the facts: on April 26, 1986, there was an explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power station in what was then the Soviet Union. About 30 people were killed in the blast, and the nuclear radiation spread across borders. Hundreds of thousands had to be evacuated, forests and farms were contaminated. People and animals became sick or contracted cancer in the years that followed. It was the worst disaster in the history of nuclear power.


AZUZ: A nearby town in what is now part of Ukraine was abandoned. Just under 50,000 people had to evacuate their homes. 30 years later, it`s a ghost town, with rotting Soviet-era houses, factories, parks and gyms.


There`s another place like it. Fukushima, Japan where an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 caused the world second worst nuclear disaster. It left a more modern town completely empty, but quick visits are giving glimpses of the past.
