Amid the coronavirus pandemic Lewis Hamilton took to social media to say he hopes some good will come out of the crisis.
With most of the world practicing stringent measures of self-isolation in an effort to help stop the spread of the virus, there are those who are noticing that a lack of human activity resulted in some positive changes in the environment. Lewis Hamilton says he hopes this crisis will help us all change for the better.
“Honestly just reading a lot. It’s crazy that the world has come to a halt and we are seeing skies clear up,” wrote Hamilton in a social media post.
“Who knows why this is all happening right now but so much to think about for all of us. In 1900 there were less than 2 billion people and now we are at 7.7 billion and increasing 140 million a year.
“All these stats are mind blowing for me. We’ve just got out of control as a race.
“What’s even more crazy is, in this sad time where we are seeing deaths of over 40,000 from this virus, around 57 million people die every year according to statistics. That would mean more than a 150,000 people die everyday worldwide.
“We have so much changing to do, to our habits, decisions we take, how we consume, all sorts. How can we truly change as a human race when we’re so stuck in our ways?
“Hopefully this global pandemic can help us all change for the better,” concluded the Briton.
