The deaths cannot be factually attributed to heat alone.
You also have to remember the age that people live to is a lot greater than it was last time we were hit by this sort of weather.
"General Funeral Services told the ministry it handled 3,230 deaths across the country from August 6-12, a 37 percent increase over the same period last year."
It's actually a 37% increase year on year of ALL deaths.
