In the coming week, temperatures in Baden-Württemberg are expected to rise well above 30 degrees again. For this reason, in a press release dated July 13, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Health warns of possible health risks. Symptoms of heat exhaustion such as dizziness, headaches, exhaustion, nausea, and vomiting should be taken seriously by people. Children or people with disabilities should never be left in any parked vehicle, even for a short time. Tips from the Ministry of Health are more general in nature: you should provide your body with sufficient suitable fluids, and avoid alcohol and coffee. It is best to stay inside during midday high temperatures or in the shade and postpone physical exertion during this time. Rooms should be primarily ventilated during the colder night or early morning. Also, outdoor activities should be restricted to the cooler morning or evening hours.
