From Pakistan to Venice, the world is facing drastic climate changes. Here are some countries having unexpected climates like cold waves, snowfall and more. 


The severe winter weather left at least 30 people dead in Pakistan, including 14 in the past 24 hours in southwestern Baluchistan province, according to provincial disaster management chief Imran Zarkon. Most of the deaths occurred when roofs collapsed under heavy snowfall.


Snow & cold climate also triggers virus

The normal body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C even in the extreme external temperature.

Therefore, there is no way that the new coronavirus can be killed in cold weather.

During this winter, the government reported 51 deaths from cold-related diseases, 10 of them in Panchagarh. Since November 1 last year, as many as 3,38,809 have been affected by cold-related diseases, the Directorate General of Health Services said in its regular update.

The cold wave has also turned into a headache for farmers who say they fear losing crops if the weather persists.
