Stay safe during summer heatwaves
As much of Australia experiences record heat conditions, the AMA advises people to avoid direct sunlight and try to be out at night when it’s cooler.
AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said today that it is critical people take exceptional care to keep hydrated, cool, and away from the sun during heatwaves.
“Hot weather can take a major toll on health, and in some cases even lead to death,” Dr Bartone said.
