Scientists calculated the number of deaths from hot weather in the last 30 years 22:29

Australian scientists from Monash University revealed how many people fell victim to heat waves every year from 1990 to 2019. The research was published in the scientific journal magazine PLOS Medicine (PLOS Med).

The team used data from the International Cooperation Network (MCC), which contains daily death and temperature information from 750 locations in 43 countries.

The analysis showed that over the past 30 years, high temperatures have caused an average of 153,078 premature deaths per year, or 1% of the annual loss of the Earth’s population. Almost half (48%) of this number occurred in Asian countries.

Europe, however, leads in the number of heat victims adjusted for population size – 655 deaths per 10 million people.

According to the report’s authors, it is important for governments around the world to address the unequal impact of heatwaves on human health. To do this, authorities need to implement early warning systems for impending heat, plant more trees in cities, and educate citizens about the dangers of heat stress to health and life.

Previously happened Climate change is known to have caused more than half a million fatal strokes worldwide.
