Slovaks endure continuing heat wave

An ongoing heat wave in Slovakia has resulted in an increase in the number of heart failures, and many school kids are being let out of school early.

According to the Slovak daily Pravda, several schools have been sending their pupils home from school before the usual end of the day. Meanwhile, hospitals say an increased number of primarily elderly patients are being treated for heart failure as a result of the heat.

According to weather forecasts, the tropical temperatures of above 30 Celsius will continue until Friday.
