HYDERABAD: The strong rise in temperature has attracted people without knowing, but more alarming than heat is the number of doubtful messages making the rounds.

Not only did people ask to stay inside, but the temperature is probably exceeded by 48 degrees Celsius!

“Hyderabad / Secunderabad Municipal Corporation issued a RED alert for three days, where the average temperature would be between 45.1 degrees Celsius and 48.5 degrees Celsius,” said one of the messages circulating on social networking platforms.
IMD officials said they had not yet issued such a warning to the city. “The temperature in the city can never reach such a level. Only if the heat wave is omnipresent until May, we can see that temperatures rise to 45 degrees Celsius, but from now on Not possible, “said Dr. K Naga Ratna, a senior scientist at Met. “People should not pay attention to such rumors at all,” he said.
The message also says that people should drink at least six to seven liters of water a day. By rejecting the claims, city doctors, quoting the American Chemistry Society, say that six liters of water can kill a person of 74 kg. They also say that drinking too much water causes a condition called hyponatremia – where the body has an abnormally low concentration of sodium in the blood due to high water consumption.
