To show support for Wuhan and the Chinese communities around the world, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa lighted up on Sunday evening.

The iconic building showed the Chinese flag in solidarity with Beijing in its fight against the new coronavirus outbreak, which has now claimed the lives of at least 362 people in China.

It also reflected the words, “Wuhan Jiayou”, which means Wuhan, stay strong.

Other iconic sites including the “Capital Gate”, the Abu Dhabi International Market, the Emirates Palace Hotel, and the Sheikh Zayed Bridge in Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Burj Al Arab, and the Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Sports Stadium were also lit until 12 midnight.

The initiative, according to a report by Emirates News Agency (WAM), comes within the framework of the strong solidarity stance shown by the UAE led by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan as well as the UAE’s its firm humanitarian approach and its willingness to provide all forms of support to the friendly People’s Republic of China to win the battle against coronavirus.

“The UAE confirmed its confidence in the ability of China to overcome this crisis and contain the spread of the Corona virus and its full solidarity with the friendly Republic of China and its people in all circumstances,” the release said.
