“Urgent! Don’t leave the shelters! If you’re indoors – close the doors and windows!” – He addresses the inhabitants of the region.

Gaidai also talks about the effects of nitric acid on humans: it is dangerous if inhaled, swallowed, and in contact with skin and mucous membranes.

Nitric acid vapors cause an irritating effect on the respiratory tract. There are signs of bronchitis, mild bronchiolitis, dizziness, drowsiness in the case of mild poisoning; pulmonary edema can be in the case of severe poisoning. Gas masks should be used to protect against nitric acid vapors and mists.

“First aid: if nitric acid gets into the eyes, rinse them under running water for 10-30 minutes. In the case of contact with the skin – wash the affected area with water, adding soda and soap. If nitric acid is swallowed, gastric lavage with plenty of water is indicated.”
