A recent survey by the Oxford University Department of Economics found that the countries that had the hottest summers in the last decade are mainly located in Asia and Europe.
The data shows that the three countries with the highest temperatures are Singapore, Japan and South Korea.
According to the latest statistics, Singapore had the highest number of days with a temperature of more than 37 degrees Celsius, followed by Japan with 37.2 degrees Celsius.
The number of temperatures more than 50 degrees Celsius was also recorded in Singapore.
The average temperature in Singapore during the summer of 2016 was 46.1 degrees Celsius and it was the second-highest in the world behind Hong Kong, with 47.1.
On average, Singaporeers spent an average of 2,600 hours indoors, compared to the US at 1,000.
Singaporeans spent a further 1,400 hours outdoors, a total of 7,000 hours, compared with the US’s 1,500.
The heatwave in Singapore was also the worst for the city’s population, with a heatwave rate of 11 per cent in August.
The research also showed that the most common sources of heat are outdoor heaters, such as air conditioners, or stoves that heat the house.
The city’s average temperature during the month of August was 31.5 degrees Celsius – the highest in Asia.
The number of people who suffered from heat-related illness has also increased dramatically.
In August, an estimated 6,700 people died from heatstroke, compared in July with 5,600.
According to the National Health Council, Singapore has the highest rate of heat-associated illness among Asian countries.
