Hot weather forces fasting moslems to resort to ORT

botchway May 10, 2019

Some Muslim faithful in Bauchi have resorted to breaking their Ramadan fast with Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) because of the hot weather being experienced in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the use of the ORS is a form of Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) applied to check dehydration caused by inadequacy of fluid in the body.

The liquid solution is a combination of water and salt mixed in specific proportion.

Some of the faithful who spoke to NAN, said the idea came handy as the intense heat left them almost dehydrated at the point of breaking of fast, hence the ORS had been coming to their rescue.
