At least 14 people were killed in eastern India affected by the extreme heat wave, after temperatures reached 49.9 degrees Celsius in some areas of the country this week.

The heat wave that prevailed throughout the week prompted officials to decide to close schools in several places, and also increased the risk of heat exhaustion among workers in outdoor spaces.

A statement issued by the Bihar state government said that 14 people were killed in the state, when temperatures exceeded 44 degrees Celsius.

The months of April, May and June are usually hot in most parts of India, but they are usually followed by monsoon rains that cool the weather. But the extreme heat has quickly become a public health crisis in India, as temperatures have risen and heatwaves have been prolonged over the past decade, causing severe water scarcity.

Climate experts say that extreme heat in South Asia before the monsoon season is becoming more common, and a study found that the temperature is now about 0.85 degrees Celsius higher in the region due to global warming.
