Deadly Heat Wave Hits Pakistan

A deadly heat wave in Pakistan has killed upwards of 65 people.

At least 65 people have died in the city of Karachi in Pakistan as a deadly heat wave moves through the country with temperatures topping 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

The organization that runs the city’s central morgue reported the deaths which have not yet been confirmed by city officials.

The heat wave comes at a particularly difficult time, as Muslims around the world celebrate the month of Ramadan, which includes fasting for nearly 15 hours per day.

In 2015, a similar heat wave overwhelmed the country’s morgues and hospitals.

Scientists have predicted that parts of South Asia will be too hot for humans to inhabit by 2100 if nothing is done to curb climate change.
