CALOR-PAKISTAN

El número de muertos por la ola de calor que afecta la sureña provincia paquistaní de Sindh desde hace cuatro días con temperaturas por encima de los 40 grados aumentó hoy a 432, mientras ha comenzado a llover en algunas de las zonas afectadas, informaron a Efe fuentes oficiales.

La mayor parte de las muertes se produjeron en Karachi, la capital de la provincia y centro económico del país, donde los hospitales registraron un alto número de fallecidos por golpes de calor y deshidratación, principalmente en personas mayores de 60 años, dijeron fuentes de varios centros médicos.

“Hasta ahora hemos registrado 200 muertos y hemos atendido a más de 3.000 personas afectadas por el calor en las últimas 24 horas”, dijo el jefe de Emergencias del Centro de Posgraduado Médico Jinnah de Karachi, Seemin Jamali.

En el Hospital Civil de la misma ciudad se produjeron 70 muertes. “No sé el numero de pacientes en estado crítico”, indicó el superintendente del centro Muzafar Husain.

En el resto de la provincia murieron 8 personas, indicó el secretario de Salud del Gobierno regional de Sindh, Said Mangnejo.

El Gobierno ha puesto en estado de emergencia los hospitales de Karachi y se han cancelado las vacaciones del personal médico.

Esta mañana llovió ligeramente en algunas zonas de Karachi y se espera que las precipitaciones se extiendan a otras áreas, lo que disminuirá las temperaturas.

Esta ola de calor se produce de forma simultánea al comienzo el pasado viernes de ramadán, el ayuno musulmán que establece la no ingesta de alimentos y bebidas entre el alba y el ocaso durante un mes.

Las olas de calor son frecuentes en el subcontinente indio en los meses de mayo y junio, que preceden a la llegada de las lluvias del monzón.

A finales de mayo una ola de calor causó unos 2.000 muertos en el sureste de la vecina India.
