Dealing with the heatwave: It is a mistake to underestimate its impact

This year, heatwaves have started when states are busy tackling the coronavirus pandemic, the migrant crisis, and few even have the locust attack to deal with. These concurrent disasters have put pressure on the state machinery. But states have no choice; they must implement the NDMA guidelines to save lives.
The NDMA has a Heat Action Plan (HAP) that provides a robust framework to states for the implementation, coordination and evaluation of extreme heat response activities. The plan outlines strategies such as establishing an early warning system; training health care professionals; public awareness; improving community outreach to alert people; setting up temporary shelters, and improving water delivery systems.(Burhaan Kinu /HTphoto)
