Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Japan also had large numbers of premature deaths, numbering between 2 and 5 million, it said.

The study is the most comprehensive look at air quality and climate to date, using 40 years of data to paint a comprehensive picture of the effects of particulate matter on health.

“Our findings suggest that changes in climate patterns could make air pollution worse,” said Associate Professor Steve Yim from NTU's Asian School of Environment, who led the study.

“When certain climate events such as El Niño occur, pollution levels may increase, which means more people may die prematurely due to PM2.5 pollution,” Yim said.
