Scorching days sicken many Shenzheners
Latest Updated by 2007-06-25 09:48:26

SHENZHEN experienced the hottest days of the year this past weekend, resulting in a sharp increase in the number of outpatients in hospitals.

The city's weather observatory recorded the maximum temperature of 36.1 degrees Celsius in Buji Subdistrict of Longgang yesterday (June 24) and 36.3 degrees Celsius in Wutong Village in Luohu on Saturday (June 22). It issued its first high temperature warning this year Saturday noon, and did not remove the warning until seven hours later.

The hot weather resulted in a sharp rise in the number of outpatients at Beijing University Shenzhen Hospital, the biggest public hospital in Futian District.

On Saturday night, the transfusion area of the hospital was so crowded that even emergency patients had to wait for more than one hour before receiving transfusion.

Shenzheners will get some relief from the scorching heat this week, however, according to the observatory.

The maximum temperature today will be 33 degrees Celsius but will drop to 30 degrees Celsius on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the observatory. Showers will also cool down the city in the first half of this week.
