Mexico’s health ministry has reported that at least 100 people have died in the past two weeks due to heat-related causes.
The country has experienced scorching temperatures reaching close to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) in certain areas.
The extreme heat has caused considerable discomfort for many Mexicans.
The majority of the deaths, over two-thirds, occurred during the week of June 18-24, with the remaining fatalities taking place the previous week.
Approximately 64% of the deaths occurred in the northern state of Nuevo Leon, which shares a border with Texas.
The rest of the fatalities were reported in the neighboring states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz along the Gulf coast.
Although recent days have seen a decline in temperatures as the rainy season has brought much-needed precipitation, certain cities in the northern regions continue to experience high temperatures.
