The Central Hydro-meteorological Forecast Centre experts said hot weather occurred on May 31 on a large scale in the north and central provinces from Thanh Hoa to Phu Yen, with the highest temperature ranging from 35 to 37 degrees Celsius.

Hanoi is also experiencing hot weather with temperature from 35-36 degrees, and northern-western provinces over 36 degrees.

On June 1, the hot weather will become harsher, with some areas being predicted to reach over 40 degrees. The hot spell is forecast to last until June 5 (next Monday), due to the influence of low air pressure in the west.

In the last two days, hot weather in the western lowland developed, the whole northern region was hot in the afternoon with a temperature of 34-35 degrees. It was over 36 degrees in some areas such as Muong La in the northern mountainous province of Son La.

Doctors warn that hot spells would threaten people’s health, especially children and the elderly, and labourers working outdoor must take appropriate measures. 

They advise that adults should keep children in airy homes during hot days, avoid bathing in the sea from 10am-4pm, vaccinate fully and maintain a clean living area.

A Bach Mai Hospital doctor in Hanoi said patients suffering high blood pressure should take daily medicine under doctor’s guidance as a precaution against strokes. According to him, in hot periods, Vietnam National Heart Institute under the Bach Mai Hospital usually receives more patients than on normal days.
