'Unprecedented' Japan heatwave kills 65 in one week

In Japan, at least 65 people were killed in an unprecedented heatwave in one week. Fire and Disaster Management Agency said in a statement that 65 people died of heat stroke while 22,647 people were hospitalised. 

Government spokesman, Yoshihide Suga said to protect the lives of schoolchildren, Government would supply funds to ensure that all schools are equipped with air conditioners by next summer.

 Yesterday, the city of Kumagaya in Saitama outside Tokyo set a new national heat record, with temperatures hitting 41.1 Celsius. 
 
The heatwave follows record rainfall that devastated parts of western and central Japan with floods and landslides that killed over 220 people. 

The record-breaking weather has revived concerns about the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which will be held in two years time in July and August.
