How many people die in a hydrogen bomb?
If a hydrogen bomb was dropped on New York City today there would be 8 million or more killed in the initial blast zone and later from radiation poisoning and cancer. So it depends on how many people are in the initial blast zone and radiation spread.

well first of all about nine people die because of a car bomb
Because the weapons were dropped on large cities.
0 to a few 100,000 depending on height/depth of burst, distance from burst, terrain, and fallout distribution. If detonated at least 5 to 10 miles from the nearest person it i…s likely nobody would be hurt at all (like Trinity test).
The attached link has information about the Soviet atomic bomb program. Anyone want to offer up info on other countries?
The US, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, and Pakistan are known to have thermonuclear weapons ("hydrogen bombs"). North Korea has tested fission cores powerfu…l enough to initiate a deuterium-tritium fusion reaction, and it's believed (though it's not known with certainty) that they have a (probably small) stockpile of thermonuclear weapons. So, that's 7 for sure, 8 almost certainly, and then there's a 9th: Israel certainly has the technology level and resources required to construct a thermonuclear weapon. However, Israel has never officially confirmed that they have such weapons, and they are a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (though it's generally suspected that they either have, or could in very short order construct, thermonuclear devices). In addition, the US has nuclear weapons physically stored in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey. The US formerly had thermonuclear devices in Canada, Greece and South Korea as well, though these have now been removed. The breakup of the USSR left some of its weapons in Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine, but these have likewise now been transferred back to Russia. South Africa at one time had six nuclear weapons, but I believe these were fission ("atomic bomb") weapons and not fusion ("hydrogen bomb") weapons and they've since been disassembled anyway.
Upwards of a million.
there was at least 180,000 people that died
297.000 directly 65.000 after the bombing
People were/are worried about fusion bombs for the same reasons they were/are worried about fission bombs, except more so because the yield of a fusion bomb is typically much …higher than the yield of a fission bomb. So a fusion bomb typically does more of everything a fission bomb does.
Cannot be determined as for some test shots the testing nation still considers the type to be classified information. And with underground testing nobody else can determinee t…ype by fallout isotope tests.
In Japan in WW2
In Japan in WW2
over 80 million people
In Japan in WW2
mostly evaporation from the blast or subsequent radiation burns...............
In World War 2
90,000-166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000-80,000 in Nagasaki.
In Nuclear Weapons
Cannot say without knowing much more information. To begin withhydrogen bombs have been built with yields from about 50 kilotonsto 50 megatons and can be built much larger. It… also depends on theheight or depth of the burst and distance from a population center.
