What is heat stroke and how to prevent it?

The Philippines and many parts of the tropics are experiencing unprecedented hot weather, which could persist until June, according to the weather experts. With this scorching heat, doctors say people need to guard against heat stroke or when the body overheats and cannot cool down by sweating due to dehydration. If you feel faint, dizzy, or weak, you may be suffering from heat stroke. Make sure to avoid direct exposure to the Sun, drink lots of water, and wear breathable clothing to stay cool. If you are with someone who is suffering from heat stroke, make them sip cool water, lie down, and remove clothing to cool the body rapidly. Heat stroke is no joke, so make sure to respond quickly before the situation gets worse.
