Ministry of Health notifies of increasing day temperature

The Ministry of Health released a public notice to go to the nearest hospital and clinics as people may encounter heat stroke at increasing temperatures.
Moreover, extreme heat can cause heat stroke such as serious body temperature, dry sweat, delusion, fainting and convulsion.
“The people with underlying diseases, the elderly and children and those who are working in the sun in the daytime need to take care of their health more than others. Because the temperature is increasing currently and the volume of fresh air is low, the oxygen level becomes lower, they may feel tired and sweating (Hyperhidrosis) and muscle pain and cramp and they may be often thirsty. Due to the irregular living style and food including the outdoor temperature, blood pressure and diabetes can increase suddenly. Therefore, people should take care of their health during this period especially the elderly, people with chronic disease and the children,” said a doctor of the township public health department.
The statement of the ministry also expressed the symptoms of heat stroke and first aid procedures.
