Weather of Arabia - The World Health Organization warned of the risk of more than 9 million deaths due to climate change annually by the end of the century.
"All aspects of health are affected by climate change, from clean air, water and soil, to food systems and livelihoods," the organization said in its World Health Statistics report, which was published on Friday, May 19, according to Bloomberg News.
"A further delay in tackling climate change will increase health risks, undermine decades of improvement in global health, and run counter to our collective commitments," she added.
The organization said that although poor African countries and small island developing states have historically contributed the least to global emissions, they bear the brunt of the health repercussions of climate change.
