“Public health workers include leaders at organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and scientists, like epidemiologists, field researchers, and lab scientists and technicians,” she added.

The doodles would feature doctors and nurses who have been fighting the virus on the front lines; teachers and food service workers who are ensuring that all essential goods and services are made available to people.
