heat wave

MNA Editorial Desk: A roasting heat wave sweeping across vast swathes of Bangladesh is likely to continue for more days, Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said.

Besides erratic load shedding, and low voltage, during the last couple of days have been causing untold sufferings to people across the country out of gear.

Many preferred to remain indoors as it has become difficult to travel outside. Day-labourers have been the worst victims.

Country’s highest temperature on Wednesday was recorded 37.8 degree Celsius at Jessore and minimum temperature was recorded 21 degree Celsius at Rangpur.

Day temperature may rise slightly but night temperature is likely to remain unchanged across Bangladesh.

Excessive heat wave also exposes people of different ages to viral infections causing a lot of irritation, running nose, fever, breathing problems with cough filling the breathing passage.

Doctors have suggested people to stay indoors, drink lots of fluid to prevent different summer diseases and keep an eye on the children and elderly.
