At least 14 people have died of heat stroke in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. All India Radio (AIR) reported this information on Friday (May 31).
Doctors in the country said the deaths recorded on Thursday (May 30) could be linked to the ongoing severe heat wave.

According to the AIR report, 10 people died in Rourkela Government Hospital and four in Sundargarh District Sadar Hospital due to severe heat wave.

Eight people died before reaching the hospital, AIR said. And the rest died there while undergoing treatment. The hospital authorities will know the actual cause of death only after the autopsy.

Odisha is witnessing a severe heat wave and the mercury has soared above 45 degrees Celsius in most parts of the state. According to reports, Jharsuguda was the hottest place in the state on Thursday as it recorded a maximum temperature of 47 degrees Celsius. Officials say many are being hospitalized for treatment of heat-related illnesses.

The Indian Meteorological Department has advised citizens to avoid exposure to heat and stay in cool places. At the same time, it is advised to stay hydrated by drinking enough water.

Apart from this, last Tuesday (May 29), AFP reported that the temperature of that day was recorded at 52.3 degrees Celsius in Delhi, the capital of India.
