As we experience the high temperatures of summer, it is important, particularly for senior citizens, to careful of heatstroke. This year, the risk of heatstroke is higher, as people’s fitness levels have dropped from a lack of exercise as they continue to stay home due to the new coronavirus.


To prevent heatstroke, it is necessary to do the following.

・Drink fluids before you get thirsty

・Make sure you eat proper meals and take regular breaks

・Avoid hot places, and expel heat from your body

・Remove your mask from time to time

Please take the appropriate preventative measures and be careful not to get heatstroke.
