A blistering summer heat wave in Japan has sent 15,000 people to hospital with heat stroke and caused at least 66 deaths in the past two months, the government said Tuesday.
Japan has baked since the rainy season ended in early July, with the mercury hitting 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) or higher at more than 90 percent of nationwide observation points Sunday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
In the week to Sunday alone, 9,436 people across the island-nation were taken to hospitals and 57 of them were confirmed killed by heat stroke, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.
The previous most deadly known heatwave came in 2008, the first year data was kept, when 47 people were killed in July and August, said the agency. Last year, 16 people were killed by heat in those two months.
I am wondering as to how many Japanese will die if they were in INDIA.
