Several countries have adopted partial or complete lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, which has not only affected businesses but also students. Teachers are offering their services so that children can continue learning during self-isolation.
Google has been running a ‘Thank you Coronavirus Helpers’ series since April 6. In this series, it, every day, thanks people from various professional backgrounds who are providing services during the lockdown.
The company, in a blog post published on April 6, made announcement about this series. “This week, we're beginning a series of Doodles to recognize 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,” said Google.
On April 6, the doodle thanked public health workers and researchers in the scientific community. The next day it paid tribute to doctors, nurses, and medical workers.
Google expressed gratitude towards emergency services workers on April 8, while the next day it thanked custodial and sanitation workers.
Yesterday, it paid respect to food service workers.
