The death toll from extreme heat has reached 155 in Mexico since March, according to a report by the country’s health ministry.

"During the current hot season (March 17-October 5), 155 deaths [related to high temperatures] were recorded across the country," the ministry said.

Mexicans attribute heat stroke, dehydration, and burns to the consequences of high temperatures.

The state of Veracruz, on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, continues to be the leader in the number of heat-related deaths; 56 people have died there.

Next is the state of Tabasco, where 18 people have died from the heat.

The Ministry of Health forecasts that this heatwave will continue in Mexico in the coming days.
