Last week, Google released a simple and moving ad thanking healthcare workers around the world for combating COVID-19.
The company is now continuing that praise by saying thank you to all coronavirus helpers with a series of Google Doodles over the next two weeks.
This week, a series of Doodles recognizes the many people responding to COVID-19 — from doctors and nurses caring for people on the front lines, to teachers and food service workers ensuring essential goods and services are still available
This Google Doodles series — usually reserved for multi-week sporting events like the Olympics and World Cup — coincides with National Public Health Week in the US.
April 6: To public health workers and to researchers in the scientific community, thank you.
April 7: To all doctors, nurses, and medical workers, thank you.
Over the next two weeks, Doodles will honor other essential frontline workers, including healthcare workers, first responders, and the many people keeping services like sanitation, food service, public transit, schools, and more up and running. Thank you to all the people who are working to save lives and keep communities safe during this pandemic
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, Google has leveraged its platforms to provide information and link to health resources.
