This summer is proving to be fatal for Mumbaikars. The emergency department of many Mumbai hospitals have seen a rise in stroke and cardiac arrest cases. Doctors said that while it is difficult to explain the reason behind the spike, extreme and prolonged heat has long been linked to an increased risk of hospitalisations and deaths from cardiovascular diseases. Hiranandani Hospital Powai’s emergency department has seen an increase of almost 50 per cent in patients with cardiovascular disease in the past two weeks.
