The Pattaya News notes that heatstroke is a serious condition that can occur when the body overheats and is unable to cool down.
It is important to take preventative measures such as staying hydrated, avoiding prolonged exposure to high temperatures, and taking breaks in cool or shaded areas, especially during this period of year in Thailand when the weather is typically very hot.
