Hot and dry weather makes its presence felt


Hot and dry weather prevailed in the city on Thursday, as the Met Office predicted no chance of rain in most parts of the country in the coming days. The mercury touched 37 degrees Celsius on Thursday and the sun fully exposed itself after a long time in the last couple of days. The humidity level also decreased to 54 percent while other parts of the country also witnessed the same weather conditions. Medical experts said that although the monsoon season had bowed out but viral diseases, including dengue, will not end until the winter season came. Dr Salman Kazmi told Pakistan Today that citizens would have to wait for around two more months to get rid of dengue. He said that dengue mosquitoes will continue breeding wherever they find stagnant water and only chilly weather could kill them.
