Highest heat alert in force

The highest-level heat alert is in force from Wednesday on instructions from the Chief Medical Officer, the National Public Health Centre told state news agency MTI Tuesday afternoon.

The third-degree heat alert will be in force until midnight Sunday.

Such a heat alert is ordered when the daily mean temperature reaches or exceeds 27C on at least three consecutive days. The Centre says that during the heat alert, everyone should consume more liquid than usual while refraining from drinking coffee, alcohol, high-caffeine or sugary drinks and eating greasy foods.

According to the recommendation, people should stay indoors from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
