Search engine giant Google on Monday honoured people who have been battling the ongoing coronavirus pandemic on the frontlines with an animated doodle.
The ‘O’ in Google have been animated to highlight doctors and other service people who toiled every day to deliver essential services during the lockdown phase and after restrictions were eased.
The doodle features a chef, a doctor, a delivery person, a bus driver, a shopkeeper, a fire person, a teacher. The heart emoji in the middle expresses love and respect to all delivery personal who have been working long hours to deliver essential goods to customers.
If a user hovers the cursor over the doodle, a message is displayed saying: « To all coronavirus helpers, thank you. »
As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people are coming together to help one another now more than ever. We’re launching a Doodle series to recognize and honor many of those on the front lines. Today, we’d like to say: To all coronavirus helpers, thank you,” today’s Google doodle page said.
The Doodle has been made available in North America, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Senegal, Oman Pakistan, Morocco, Japan, Thailand, and many more countries.
On August 5th, Google Doodle showed the letters of ‘Google’ wearing masks and maintaining physical distance from each other.
It said, ‘Wear a Mask and Save Lives’. Once you clicked on the doodle, you were taken to a ‘COVID-19 prevention’ landing page that listed various methods through which you can protect yourself from contracting coronavirus infection and prevent from spreading it to others.
Back in April, Google honoured packaging, shipping, and delivery workers for their selfless service amid the nationwide lockdown with an animated illustration.
The animated doodle showed the letter ‘G’ in ‘Google’ holding a package and sending love to a delivery truck that represents the letter ‘E’.
