Beware of heatstroke

Beware of heatstroke

In this summer, please beware of heatstroke more than usual.

Because of the coronavirus, we have less opportunity to go out.

You would be at a higher risk of getting heatstroke if your bodies don't adapt to the heat and you don't sweat as much.

To get used to the heat, it is said to be good to exercise occasionally, or take a bath in hot water to get your body to sweat.

Also, please be careful when you go out with wearing a mask.

Since the air you breathe is warmer, your body temperature is more likely to be higher.

Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA: kisho-cho) will announce the heat warning when temperatures are likely to be high.
