Delhi Weather: India’s capital still under prolonged heatwave

As India continues to battle through a brutal heatwave, the capital city of Delhi is still reeling under prolonged high temperatures. With the mercury soaring above 40C and some parts of the country even hitting 50C, the scorching heat has been taking a toll on the population.

To address the escalating crisis, the largest hospital in Delhi has opened a first-of-its-kind heat stroke emergency room. Despite these measures, dozens of people have tragically lost their lives to heat-related illnesses since the start of summer in March.

The situation in Delhi is particularly alarming as the city is experiencing temperatures about 20C hotter than the average for the month of June. This extreme heatwave is not only making daily life unbearable for residents but also posing serious health risks.

As the country grapples with the ongoing heatwave, it is essential for authorities to prioritize measures to ensure the well-being of the population. With the rising temperatures showing no signs of abating, it is crucial for individuals to take necessary precautions to stay safe during this challenging period.
