Heat stroke, prevention, and cure

In India, summer is almost here, and with it comes dangerously high temperatures. Heatstroke is a major health hazard that killed two people in India on average per day in the summer of 2023, according to data. A total of 252 deaths were reported in the first half of 2023 (until June 30), up from 33 in the same time previous year. When the body overheats, it usually happens from extended exposure to high temperatures or physical activity in hot conditions. The WHO reports that India's heatwave season usually lasts from March to June. However, it sometimes lasts into July.
