Peo­ple are tak­ing care

Wexford People - - NEWS -

IT AP­PEARS that peo­ple in County Wex­ford are ad­her­ing to warn­ings about over-ex­po­sure to the sun as a re­sult of the cur­rent heat­wave grip­ping the coun­try.

Ac­cord­ing to a spokesper­son for the HSE the num­ber of peo­ple who at­tended Wex­ford Gen­eral Hospi­tal as a re­sult of such over-ex­po­sure within the last fort­night was very low.

Caro­line Kohn, group com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager for the Ire­land East Hospi­tal Group, com­mented: ‘Only two peo­ple have pre­sented at Wex­ford Gen­eral Hospi­tal with sun or heat-re­lated is­sues in the last two weeks.’

With the cur­rent heat­wave ex­pected to con­tinue un­til at least next week the HSE is still ad­vis­ing peo­ple to ex­er­cise ex­treme cau­tion when out­side. Peo­ple are ad­vised not to be out dur­ing peak sun­shine hours in the mid­dle of the day.
