Sindh declared a state of emergency for the duration of the heat wave

The provincial health department declared a 24-hour emergency to deal with the unfavorable circumstances after the Pakistan Meteorological Department issued a heatwave warning for Sindh and the rest of the country. According to a statement released by the Sindh Health Department, the heatwave in Pakistan and India would exceed worldwide estimates. According to the statement, scorching weather is expected to grip the country starting next Sunday due to high pressure in the upper atmosphere, citing the Meteorological Department’s weather notice. Jamshoro, Thatta, Badin, Hyderabad, Sanghar, Khairpur, Naushero Feroze, Dadu, Sukkur, Larkana, Ghotki, Jacobabad, Mirpurkhas, and Umerkot will all be affected by the heatwave in Sindh.

“Currently, Karachi is not under the influence of heatwave. However, due to high humidity in the air, the greater intensity of temperature is being felt,” said Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz. Sarfaraz said that the mercury may even hit 50 degrees Celsius in different parts of Sindh. He said that the intensity of the heat was recorded higher than normal in the upper, central, and southern Punjab as well as different parts of Balochistan. “The heatwave has gripped different parts of the country and may continue till May 15. During this period, the intensity of heat will be higher than normal,” he added.

The health department also issued an advisory for the health facilities across Sindh to follow. It stated that the control room at the provincial level should be established and it should also ensure the availability of air conditioning, ice, backup electric supply and water at special wards. There were many other details that are also added in the advisory. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Meteorological Department said that a severe heatwave is likely to grip Sindh till May 16.
