"Extreme Heat/Heatwave Advisory by Directorate of Health Services, Goa. If you are experiencing heatwave symptoms, please seek immediate assistance at the nearest health centre or district hospital," the government said.

State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane has posted the advisory on his social media account.

The government has asked people to drink sufficient water and avoid dehydration, apart from taking precautions while stepping out during the day.


"Although anyone at any time can suffer from the heat stress, some people are at greater risk than others and should be given additional attention," the advisory stated.
