Malawi swelters in record heat with temperatures nearly 20C above average

Malawians endured the country’s hottest weekend on record, with temperatures reaching nearly double the seasonal average. The heatwave began last Thursday with the government warning people to stay out of the sun, to keep hydrated, and avoid alcohol and caffeine. Some school buildings in the south of the country were evacuated, and children were taught in the shade of playground trees.

            The record-breaking heatwave in Malawi is concerning and highlights the urgent need to address climate change. The government should put efforts to protect people, especially children from the extreme temperatures . It is important for individuals and nations to take action to mitigate the effects of global warming and ensure the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants.
