The summers have reached their peak in the country. As the temperatures continue to soar, the Indian Meteorological Department issued a red alert across states in the country sounding a heatwave, asking people to stay at home. Yes, apart from the coronavirus pandemic, there is a dire need for people to stay indoors for the safety of their health.
A heatwave is an acute period when the weather turns excessively hot and the rise in temperature carries repercussions for the human body.

In some rare cases, a heatwave can also be threatening and impact the nervous and circulatory system in the body.
