This morning is kinda cooler than the past few weeks. Summer in Japan hits an incredibly high temperature this year that many are treated and even died of dehydration. A child in one of the prefectures died abruptly upon playing in a nearby park, so we as residents and living here must take extra precautions and monitor on how we are dealing with the heatwave.
Always have a dehydration kit ready. Salt candies, sports-drink, water. Always set the air conditioner to a 27-28 degrees Celsius.
WHAT TO DO WHEN DEHYDRATION STRIKES AT HOME
- Rehydrate using salt candy and water. Gradually drink water while having salt candy, having so much would only make you bloated.
- Monitor your body temperature.
- To lower your body temps, get ice from the freezer and wrap it with a small face towel and put it on both sides of the neck (temperature lowers much faster this way)
- If feeling extreme dizziness or numbness in the body happens, call Emergency as soon as possible
