“All Filipino nationals in Italy, especially the elderly, infants, children, and pregnant women, are advised to take the necessary precautions and to be cautious of the negative effects caused by high temperatures,” the embassy said in a statement.

The Po, Italy’s longest river, has been reduced due to the country’s worst drought in over 70 years.
