Burj Khalifa in Dubai lit up with the tricolour to showcase support in India's fight against the unprecedented Covid-19 situation.

In a tweet on Sunday, the Indian embassy in Abu Dhabi on Sunday tweeted a 17-second video of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, displaying the Indian flag and #staystrongIndia.

With a total height of 829.8 m and a roof height of 828 m, Burj Khalifa, a skyscraper in Dubai, is the tallest structure and building in the world.

"As #India battles the gruesome war against #Covid19, its friend #UAE sends its best wishes @BurjKhalifa in #Dubai lits up in to showcase its support," the Indian embassy tweeted.

India has been reeling under the deadly second wave of Covid-19. The country on Sunday recorded 3,49,691 new Covid-19 cases, the highest single-day spike since the pandemic broke out last year. According to the Union Health Ministry, the country has recorded 2,767 new deaths due to Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.

The worsening Covid-19 situation has seen a surge in the demand for medical oxygen and beds for the Covid-19 patients and many states are reporting an acute shortage in essential medical supplies.
