Around 109 people died and hundreds more wounded due to the heat wave that is sweeping across Egypt nationwide, official news agency MENA reported.

The Egyptian health ministry released on Tuesday a statement to follow up health situation in all governorates, saying that about 191 people suffered heatstroke, 109 of whom were discharged from hospital, while three cases died.

In August, Egypt has been hit by heat wave with maximum temperatures exceeding 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit).

The spokesperson of health ministry said last week when the death toll reached 61 that the capital has seen the biggest death toll, followed by Giza province and some of Upper Egypt cities.
