India's weather bureau has issued a warning of severe heatwave conditions this week, with temperatures reaching a scorching 47.4ºCelsius in Delhi's Najafgarh suburb on Monday. The Indian Meteorological Department has particularly emphasized the health risks associated with the heat, particularly for infants, the elderly, and those with chronic illnesses. India has long been accustomed to sweltering summer temperatures, but research indicates that climate change is causing heatwaves to be longer, more frequent, and more intense.
