Heat stroke is a serious health condition that can be caused by high air temperatures and compunded by a person’s physical condition. Every year, after the end of the rainy season the number of heat stroke patients tends to increase rapidly.

Avoid exposure to direct sunlight when outside on very hot and humid days. Use parasols and hats to block sunshine. It’s advisable to wear light colors and loose clothes. Drink plenty of water to avoid becoming dehydrated. When indoors, use fans or air conditioners to cool down the room temperature. For people who are under treatment for a condition, please consult your medical doctor about means to avoid dehydration. Having a balanced diet and exercising regularly is a key to avoiding heat stroke.
