Seven-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has expressed his concerns about the alarming Covid-19 situation in India.
The British racing driver has sent in his good wishes as the country battled a massive second wave of the coronavirus with daily cases going past 300,000.
"Praying for the beautiful India this morning. I know this pandemic is hitting so many places around the world. Please stay safe out there," Hamilton wrote on his instagram page.
India registered over 314,000 new cases on Thursday morning, pushing the overall number to nearly 160 million, according to the data provided by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. This is the highest single-day spike the country recorded ever since the pandemic began last year.
