In a few weeks from now, the scorching sun will descend upon us with all its might. Despite all the precautions, people will be affected - dehydration, exhaustion, stress - a sunstroke. Here's how you can help:

·        In order to bring down the temperature use wet cloth / pour water on the victim’s head.
·        Give the person ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution) to drink or lemon water/sarbat/torani/lassi or whatever is useful to rehydrate the body.
·        Take the person immediately to the nearest health centre.
·        If consistently experiencing high body temperature, throbbing headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea or disorientation in the summer, call 108/ambulance.
