HCMC – The ultraviolet radiation (UV) indexes in HCMC and elsewhere in southern Vietnam will pose a high risk of harm between 11:00 and 13:00 from February 13 to 15, according to the Southern Regional Hydrometeorological Center.

The high UV radiation indexes these days are harmful to health, with a forecast at 9.3 in HCMC, 8.2 in Can Tho City and 8.6 in Ca Mau Province.
