The Ministry of Health calls for preventive measures from the heat wave

Today, Sunday, the Ministry of Health reminded of the precautions that must be taken due to the high temperature during these days in a number of states of the country, and the necessary preventive measures inside and outside homes.

Keep windows closed as long as the temperature outside is higher than inside

Avoid going out during the hottest times

– If going out is necessary, let it be early in the morning or late in the evening

– In the event that you have to go out, it is advised to wear light and spacious clothes and to stay under the shade, away from continuous exposure to the sun;

Shower several times a day, if possible

Drink enough drinks, avoiding those that contain a large amount of sugar or caffeine
