What to do if affected by heatwave?
First, call an ambulance or take the victim to the hospital yourself (delay in medical aid can be fatal), move the patient to a shady place while waiting for the ambulance.
Lay the patient on the floor and place his feet on a high object (to increase blood flow to the heart).
If the patient’s clothes are tight, loosen them.
Put cold bandages on the patient’s body or spray cold water.
Turn the pedestal fan towards the patient, but if there is no electricity, blow the patient with anything.
Apart from this, keep a bottle of water with you when you go out of the house, even if it is not fasting, and use water immediately if you feel unwell, because fasting can be expiated, but life cannot come back.
