The heat wave that is hitting Spain has caused the death of more than 500 people, said this Wednesday (07.20.2022) the Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez during a visit to an area affected by a fire in the Aragón region.

“I ask citizens to exercise extreme caution,” requested the socialist president, who once again stressed that “the climate emergency is a reality” and “climate change kills.” Sánchez had already used similar terms on other occasions during this latest heat wave, in which maximums of 45 degrees have been registered in some areas and fueled numerous fires that have devastated tens of thousands of hectares throughout the country.

The number of deaths that Sánchez cited is a reference to the estimates made by the Carlos III Public Institute, which makes a statistical calculation of the increase in mortality caused by precise causes, such as rising temperatures, when comparing these figures with the series historical statistics. In this sense, the institute stressed that it is not an official registry of deaths.
