Posted February 03, 2018 09:17:20 This year has been the hottest on record, and the heat has not gone away, says Dr. V.V. Srinivasan, director, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad.
In fact, the city of Kerala is in the midst of its hottest year on record.
“This year, the average temperature has been around 26 degrees Celsius, which is about 40 degrees higher than the average recorded in 2018,” Srinivasan told CNN India.
The heat has also forced residents to pack their bags, as many businesses and government offices are closed.
The number of heat-related deaths has risen from a low of 2,977 in the first six months of 2018 to 7,907 in the final six months.
“If we had been following the previous record, which was in the low single digits in 2019, then the number of deaths would have been less than 20,” Sinivasan said.
We need to work on the infrastructure and ensure that the government provides more than 1,000 megawatts of power to the country, which it is unable to provide,” he added. “
There is a risk of serious damage to the infrastructure, especially to power stations and roads, if the heat continues to rise.
We need to work on the infrastructure and ensure that the government provides more than 1,000 megawatts of power to the country, which it is unable to provide,” he added.
The drought and heat The drought in the state has been a serious challenge for the state.
According to the latest figures from the Central Drought Mitigation Authority (CDPA), the state experienced the worst drought since the 1960s.
While it has not been as severe as some other states, it has been severe in terms of both rainfall and crop losses, especially for water and food crops.
The total number of cases of cholera in the province is at 1,664.
This is the highest number in five years, and it is the second highest since the CDPA started tracking choleria in India in 2014.
“People have been coming to us from all parts of the country for medical treatment,” said A.R. Balasubramanian, director of the Kerala State Drought Management Centre (KSDMC), which is responsible for water conservation.
“A lot of people are going to hospitals, for treatment and prevention of chilis and other infections,” Balasabramanian told CNN.
He said the government is planning to provide drinking water to thousands of people.
“When we had the last drought, we had a shortage of water, but now, there is no shortage.
We will do our best to fill the demand,” Balamantran said.
The state has also been grappling with heat-induced deaths.
In the first half of the year, more than 20,000 deaths were recorded.
The State Government has set up a task force to look into the issue.
The Kerala Government also launched a new initiative, the KSDMC-I-Disease-Response Plan, to monitor cholestatic and cholemic diseases and deaths.
The plan includes measures to help people who have suffered heatstroke and other illnesses to avoid future heat stroke.
“I think the most important thing is to be prepared for the heat,” Baladran said, adding that if it continues, more and more people are likely to suffer heat stroke and other health problems.
