Recently (April 2020) a forest fire in the area near Chernobyl has set off alarms by multiplying the usual radiation levels in the area by 16, dispersing a radioactive cloud throughout much of Europe (fortunately, it seems nothing serious) .
It particularly reassures me to see a graph like this one, with data on radioactivity in Madrid, collected by my own means at that time, which I know has not been manipulated.
In it, it can be seen how the radiation data during the fire, and in the following days, were at the same levels of the days fire prices:
