The agency outlined the potential implications of the prolonged heatwave, including dehydration, heat-related illnesses, respiratory issues, and increased vulnerability to chronic conditions. Symptoms such as fainting, chickenpox, measles, heat rash, weakness, slight fever, and dry lips may manifest due to the extreme heat.

In light of these risks, NiMET issued advisories to help Nigerians mitigate the effects of the heatwave. Recommendations include staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, seeking shade, using fans, and wearing light, breathable clothing to reduce exposure to high temperatures. Additionally, individuals are advised to avoid strenuous physical activity during peak heat hours, typically between 12:00 noon and 4:00 pm, and to stay indoors as much as possible.

As Nigerians grapple with the challenges posed by the prolonged heatwave, adherence to these precautionary measures can help minimize the impact on health and well-being. NiMET continues to monitor weather patterns and provide updates to ensure the public remains informed and prepared for any changes in conditions.
