Public holidays due to the extreme heatwave in the country.

Thursday July 11th 2024

Iraq’s meteorology and seismology organization announced that temperatures are set to reach 50 degrees Celsius, prompting a public holiday on Thursday July 11th 2024 in several provinces.

“Temperatures will reach above 50 degrees Celsius in central and southern provinces,” Amir Jabri, spokesperson for Iraq’s meteorology department, told Rudaw on Wednesday.

Jabri highlighted the onset of the year's second heatwave, expected to persist for a few days and cautioned against direct exposure to sunlight.

Thursday is a workday in Iraq; however, public offices and most businesses are closed on Friday and Saturday.

According to the organization’s forecasts, eight provinces will experience temperatures of at least 50 degrees Celsius.

August 2nd - 3rd 2023

Iranian authorities have announced two days of public holiday due to the extreme heatwave in the country. Public and private-sector offices as well as banks and the stock exchange will be shut on August 2nd-3rd 2023, Government Spokesman Ali Bahadori Jahromi said on state TV.

"In order to protect the health of citizens due to the unprecedented heat these days, the proposal of the Ministry of Health to hold a holiday on Wednesday and Thursday throughout the country was accepted by the Council of Ministers," Anadolu Agency reported Iranian government spokesman Ali Bahadori Jahromi said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
