This week, the DMN issued a score of special notes, warning of scorching temperatures around the country.
While heatwaves are normal during summer in Morocco, some regions where the weather remains relatively mild experienced exceptionally scorching temperatures, including the Rabat-Sale Kenitra region.
Experts recommend eight to 10 glasses of water a day during the summer, but the quantity of water consumed should also take into account the person’s weight. Health experts also emphasize the use of sunscreen during outdoor activities to protect the skin from potential sun damage.
