Saurabh Bharadwaj, Delhi’s health minister, said on Thursday that 380 people were admitted to government hospitals in the city and 14 died as a result of heat-related illnesses in the last 48 hours. He noted that 112 patients had been discharged, while 118 remained hospitalised in Delhi.

According to media estimates, 10 individuals have died in Noida in the last 24 hours as a result of heat stroke.

According to Saurabh Bharadwaj, many people are suffering throughout north India, especially in Delhi, as a result of temperatures reaching as high as 52 degrees Celsius at night—the highest in 60 years.

Prior to this, the medical superintendent of RML Hospital had said that the majority of patients were labourers in Delhi, who suffered the most from the heatwave. Additionally, he stated that hospital access delays are the primary cause of mortality.

Bharadwaj told the media that he was going to government hospitals to make sure they were stocked with enough IV fluids, medications, and ice packs.

The Delhi Health Minister added that he had discussed the bodies found by the police and brought to DDU Hospital with the Commissioner of Delhi Police. He promised that they would investigate whether heat-related problems were the cause of death in those situations.

According to Bharadwaj, the Delhi Police should identify anybody who appears ill or has a high temperature during their nighttime inspections and either take them to the nearest hospital or call for an ambulance.

Despite the unrelenting heat in Delhi, Thursday morning’s temperatures have somewhat cooled off due to light rain. The IMD states that relief is anticipated later in the month with the advent of the monsoons. The health problems caused by the heat have got worse because Delhi has also been dealing with a water crisis.
