The Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection warns the population about the danger of long-term heat and recommends that they respect the rules of protection in the case of high temperatures. Svetlana Cebotari also ordered medical and social institutions to take all the necessary measures to ensure their stable functioning.
The weather can affect the health of the population. In this context, in order to prevent the negative effects of heat, we have ordered all medical and social institutions to take all the necessary measures to ensure the stable functioning of the institutions, strictly following the sanitary-epidemiological and anti-criminal regime.
I have personally checked if this order is being followed and if institutions have all the conditions for patients not to be affected by high temperatures. We asked all institutions to have air conditioners and fans in salons and operating theaters.
I urge the population to avoid long exposure to the sun and to use protective means (hats, umbrellas, sunglasses, protective cream) to consume as many liquids, fruits and vegetables as possible," wrote the Minister of Health, Labor and Protection Sociale, Svetlana Cebotari.
According to meteorologists, up to 31 degrees is expected today.
