Two admitted to hospital with heatstroke

TWO people were on Tuesday admitted to hospital suffering from heatstroke as temperatures are set to remain at high levels.
“Two foreign nationals have been taken to the General Hospital in Paphos for treatment after suffering from heatstroke. These are the only cases reported in Paphos so far,” said Hospital Director Spyros Georgiou.
On Wednesday the temperature in Nicosia is expected to reach between 38C and 40C, while normal temperatures for this time of year are 36C.
However high temperatures over the last few days have felt warmer than they are. “Due to the fact that temperatures are 2C to 4C higher than normal, the humidity even though at normal rates of 30-35% is making temperatures feel a lot higher than what they actually are,” an official at the Department of Meteorology said.
Temperatures are expected to drop back to normal by Thursday.
