Prostration “exposes the nakedness” .. an uproar in Egypt after crowning a champion with the gold medal

During the summer, temperatures reach their highest in Kuwait City, which makes it “the hottest in the world,” according to the newspaper.Mirror” British.

Last year, the city witnessed a temperature rise of 52 degrees Celsius, while it recorded a decrease of only a few degrees, Thursday, at 50 degrees Celsius, which is 10 degrees Celsius more than a healthy body temperature.

In this hot climate, the air rushing through the city becomes dangerous and potentially deadly.

With average daily highs of around 44°C from June to August, locals are avoiding the scorching sun, opting instead to stay indoors and in their offices where the air conditioning keeps it cool.

Homes, offices and various means of transportation are equipped with cooling devices, as residents tend, instead of daily outings, to visit commercial centers, which are equipped with air cooling facilities for their convenience.

A Kuwaiti architect told the British newspaper that with no shade on the streets outside, “it is almost as if there is no air”.

The “Mirror” report, on the other hand, pointed out that the expatriates and the poor who live in Kuwait City and other hot cities in Iran, Pakistan and India are at risk of this high temperature, as the majority of them do not enjoy the same “luxury” enjoyed by the rich in Kuwait, even those who belong to the middle class. medium.

Heat in Pakistan caused the death of a number of people in Karachi

Kuwait City, an important economic center, attracts large numbers of expatriates from Southeast Asia and other Arab countries.

Many simple workers can be seen lining the streets, hiding from the sun under umbrellas or perspiring from overcrowded buses and public transport, the report says.

Severe heat is not a local problem in Kuwait. In Iran’s Ahvaz and Khuzestan, which is also rich in oil, temperatures have risen to nearly 50 degrees Celsius, coupled with air pollution that has further complicated the situation for the city’s 1.5 million residents.

The World Health Organization ranked Ahvaz in the first place for the worst air quality around the world, due to the smoke that factories produce, in addition to dust storms that turn the air color into a dark brown.

Earlier this year, the countries of the Middle East and the Gulf faced sandstorms that covered the region with a brown to red layer of air that reached even parts of Spain and France, and even London.

In Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, a heat wave last month caused several deaths, while a temperature rise in Delhi, India, to more than 45 degrees Celsius, led to a wave of hospitalizations in May.
