In Tokyo, there were a series of cases of death on suspicion of heat stroke, and it was found by interviews with the Tokyo Medical Examiner's Office that a total of 42 people died last month.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, 42 men and women in their 40s and 90s died last month on suspicion of heat stroke.
Looking at the past 10 years, the number of people in June has been less than 10 every year, and this is a remarkable increase.
By age group, the number of people in their 80s was the highest at 16.
Of these, in Edogawa Ward, a man in his 80s was found dead on his futon on the 30th of last month.
At that time, there were no air conditioners or fans.
The city center of Tokyo has had nine consecutive hot days from the 25th of last month to the 3rd of this month, but it is estimated that out of the 42 people who died last month, 38 people, or 90%, died after the 25th of last month. ..
In addition, since four people have already died this month, the Tokyo Fire Department and others are calling for measures against heat stroke, such as using air conditioning without patience and diligently replenishing water before thirsty. ..
