India witnesses a substantially greater number of deaths due to moderately cold temperatures (13.8-30 degrees Celsius) than from extremely cold and hot temperatures, a study has said.
While an extremely hot temperature had the highest risk of deaths, as the mercury dipped, moderately cold temperature contributed to the most deaths in India.
Currently, public health interventions focus on the adverse health impact of extreme heat. The results of the study suggest that public health sectors should re-evaluate their intervention efforts and consider expanding their focus to include moderately cold temperature.
