The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the number of Americans who die from heat-related illness in the US has risen over the past year.
The new data, released by the CDC on Thursday, showed that in March, there were 4.3 million deaths due to heat-associated illnesses.
That’s an increase of 2,000 people over the same period in 2016, but still a far cry from the 14 million Americans who died from heatstroke in the United States last year.
That increase was due to a sharp increase in deaths from heat stroke, which the CDC says was a “major public health issue” in the U.S. The data also showed that the average age of a person who died in the heat-caused category was over 51, which is more than three times higher than in 2016.
In March, the average person was 51.2, while the average American was 42.6, according to the data.
That meant that Americans who were living in states that saw a higher number of heat-involved deaths had an average age at death of 57.4.
For those living in more than one state, the most common cause of death in that state was pneumonia, according the data, with an average of 17.6 deaths per 1,000 residents.
In the first nine months of 2017, there was a 13 percent jump in the number in the country, according a report from the UPI news service.
That rise was also linked to an increase in people who died due to exposure to the sun and heat.

“More people are getting heatstroke and are not getting the care they need.
It’s a public health crisis.”
In March 2017, the CDC released the first national map showing the increase in the rates of heat stroke in the nation.
It shows that a quarter of Americans are experiencing heatstroke due to their job or work location.
The new CDC data shows that people who work in high-heat environments have the highest rates of COVID, and that there is a significant link between the number and age of exposure to heat.
“We know that exposure to hot weather, especially in urban settings, increases risk for COVID,” Sisson said.
“The higher the exposure, the greater the risk for infection.”
