Scientists on the eve of the November UN summit called for joint action against climate change. In their opinion, it will affect people's health more strongly than the coronavirus and may lead to a "health disaster."

As they write "News”, An open letter about this was signed by more than 450 organizations representing 45 million healthcare workers. They called on world leaders to pay attention to changes in human health due to climate change. Temperatures will rise 2,7-3,1 degrees this century.

Among the most dangerous phenomena, doctors noted air pollution. More than seven million people die prematurely every year due to burning fossil fuels. The number of diseases that are carried with food and water is also increasing. The destruction caused by heat, floods, storms and other disasters does not pass without leaving a trace.
