To protect yourself from the effects of extreme heat, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding sugary or alcoholic beverages. It is also advisable to wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing and use sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. 

 

Additionally, staying indoors during the hottest part of the day and using fans or air conditioning can help keep you cool. If you must be outdoors, try to limit physical activity and take frequent breaks in shaded areas. 

 

It is also important to check on vulnerable populations such as the elderly, children, and those with chronic medical conditions who may be more susceptible to heat-related illnesses. Encourage them to stay cool and hydrated as well. 

 

In case of heat-related illness such as heat exhaustion or heatstroke, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms include heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, headache, muscle cramps, rapid heartbeat, confusion or disorientation. 

 

Remember that prevention is key when it comes to dealing with extreme heat. By taking simple precautions like staying hydrated and keeping cool during hot weather conditions, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the potentially dangerous effects of a heatwave. 

 

As we continue to experience high temperatures across North India this week due to a severe heatwave alert issued by IMD for several states in the region until May 25th , let us all do our part in staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. Stay informed about weather updates from reliable sources like IMD and follow their guidelines for coping with extreme heat conditions effectively. 


 

By being proactive in protecting ourselves against extreme temperatures through proper hydration , wearing appropriate clothing , seeking shade whenever possible , limiting outdoor activities during peak hours (10am-4pm) etc., we can minimize health risks associated with prolonged exposure under scorching sun rays . Let's prioritize our well-being by adopting preventive measures advised by WHO & other health authorities so that we can enjoy the summer season without compromising on our health !
