Stifling heatwave grips Madrid

A heatwave has gripped Spanish capital Madrid for days with the temperatures nearing 40 degrees Celsius. The maximum temperature in several central and southern Spanish provinces even climbed to 44 degrees Celsius in recent days. The scorching summer heat has led to a dramatic drop in water levels of reservoirs and worsened the country's drought. Recently, two outdoor workers died due to high temperatures in the country. The Spanish Ministry of Health reminded residents to avoid long-term outdoor exposure, advising vulnerable groups such as the young and the elderly to take necessary precautions to avoid heatstroke.
