Yesterday, a 60-year-old man from the municipality of Galati died due to the heat. This is why the Ministry of Health calls on the population to take into account the advice of doctors to avoid incidents.

Hydration is extremely important and a daily consumption of liquids is recommended, respectively between 1.5 and 2 liters of liquids, without waiting for the feeling of thirst to appear. A glass of water is needed every 15-20 minutes.

You should eat as much fresh fruit and vegetables as possible, which contain a lot of water, and remember that a dose of yogurt produces the same hydration as a glass of water.
