The Parliamentary Secretary for Active Aging has urged elderly people to keep warm, as temperatures are expected to become even colder before the week is over.

In a statement issued on Thursday afternoon the secretariate advised elderly people to keep themselves active, wear warm clothes and keep their households warm. 

The statement also urged elderly citizens to eat and drink warm foods like coffee, tea and soups. 

Physical exercise was also recommended, as it helps the body warm-up faster. 

The mercury is expected to go down to 5°C by the end of the week, as northerly winds are expected to reach Force 7.
