Do not take the potentially fatal threat of the heat wave for granted -Tufton
As the country continues to experience record-high temperatures, Health and Wellness Minister, Dr. Christopher Tufton is urging citizens to manage their exposure to the heat and not to take the threat for granted.
Jamaica and other countries across the world have been facing a sweltering heat wave.
In countries such as India, Mexico and the United States, scores of people have reportedly died from heat-aggravated conditions.
Speaking in Parliament yesterday (July 11), Dr Tufton said Jamaicans, especially those who work outdoors, should not ignore the potentially fatal threat of the heat wave.
He also reminded Jamaicans that hydration is critical during this heat wave.
