IASAÚDE – Hot Weather Advice


Although temperatures are supposed to drop slightly this afternoon, and the air quality improve the Institute of Health Administration (IASAÚDE) has issued a warning stating that due care is necessary due to the sudden increase of dust in the atmosphere.

The recommendations are primarily for people with chronic respiratory diseases. IASAÚDE suggests to keep the doors and windows of buildings closed and to avoid going out during the hottest hours. They also advise that people drink more water and avoid physical exercise in outdoor spaces.

Finally, for those who start to experience symptoms of respiratory problems the health authority ask sufferers to make sure that they take their prescribed medications, but if symptoms worsen, or develop rapidly, then medical attention must be sought.
