The Ministry of Health in Vietnam Advises Limiting Outdoor Activity on Hot Days

The Ministry of Health has issued a recommendation for people to limit outdoor activities between 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on hot days and to drink at least 1.5-2 liters of water per day. This recommendation was included in an official dispatch sent to localities on prevention and protection of public health and workers against the effects of heat, drought, and saltwater intrusion.

Due to the intense heat appearing in many parts of the country, this advice was prompted with the North experiencing early heat and the South regularly reaching temperatures of 37-38 degrees Celsius. Common health problems during this season include heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and dehydration. These issues are often caused by prolonged exposure to high temperatures or sudden changes in environmental temperature. High-risk groups include the elderly, young children, pregnant women, and those who work in hot environments for extended periods. Individuals with chronic diseases are also susceptible to serious illness during hot weather.

To prevent these issues, it is recommended that people limit sun exposure, wear light-colored clothing, stay hydrated, and eat foods high in water content. Individuals working in hot environments should adjust their schedules to avoid peak temperatures and take regular breaks in shaded areas. Protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses should be worn to minimize sun exposure.

When working in the sun, it is important to drink water regularly and replenish lost minerals through beverages like oresol
