Over 10 voters have died amid history’s biggest election—and it’s not even halfway done
By Quartz India 26-Apr-2019
In the southern state of Kerala, six voters collapsed at the polling stations on April 23, while two died soon after leaving. Earlier, two persons died in the state on their way to vote. On the same day, two others collapsed and died at the voting booths in the eastern state of West Bengal and Chhattisgarh in central India.
Sun-strokes as well as fatigue due to standing in long queues are suspected to be the cause of death in most cases. The youngest among the deceased was aged 44, the oldest was 84.
Temperatures have risen steadily with the early arrival of summer in India. While maximum daily temperatures in north and central India have crossed 40°C, Kerala is sweltering due to humidity.
