As the world grapples with the Covid-19 pandemic, Google created a doodle thanking all coronavirus helpers including doctors, nurses, delivery staff, farmers, teachers, researchers, sanitation workers, grocery workers, and emergency services workers, and others. Is. Fight against the crisis.
Sharing its doodle on Twitter, Google India urged all front-line workers to stay at home in honor of those who are helping us fight the pandemic.
Google has over the years celebrated the anniversaries of famous people, celebrated festivals, and celebrated important days in the history of the country through its doodles. The company changes its logo to mark important occasions.
With communities across the world being affected by the coronavirus crisis, people are coming together to help each other fight the pandemic and the latest Google Doodle series honors those on the front lines. “As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people are coming together now more than ever to help each other. “We are launching a doodle series to recognize and honor many of those on the front line,” Google said on its Doodle website.
The basic theme of the doodle has been that the letter ‘G’ (from Google) at the end sends hearts and admiration for the letter ‘E’ who dress up as a coronavirus helper. The Internet search giant encouraged users to appreciate the efforts of healthcare workers in their lives with a designated GIF. These GIFs are available on Gboard, Tenor’s GIF keyboard, or in the GIF search in social media apps.
Thanks to ‘coronavirus warriors’ across the world, there is some hope and light even in these dark, trying times. Although much of the world is under lockdown, it is people working in essential services and volunteers who have made sure everything is up and running, often putting their lives at risk. To express gratitude, Google has been honoring various businesses by displaying them on its homepage.
“Like all of our doodles, we hope the series allows assistants everywhere to feel seen, heard and valued and that there will be a light at the end of what feels like a long tunnel for all to remember,” Jessica You, the Doodle team lead, wrote in a blog post covering the two-week special Doodle series.

All the animated doodles – ten in total – were designed in such a way that the “G” represents a community that sends its ‘love’ in the final letter which was designed to resemble a particular profession. Most of the pros were designed with masks in mind with social distancing in mind.
In particular, the animated series, in which the company claims it has developed a “real-time doodle series focusing on a single theme” for the first time in such a short period.
From cleaning workers to medical professionals, the tech company tried to honor all those without whom the world cannot function at this time.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai took to Twitter to announce the launch of the series starting April 6.
Doodle for farmers, grocery store staff, food industry
The tech company also honored people who are often sidelined or not given proper credit. Acknowledging the significant work done by all the detention and sanitation workers, the tech giant said that their “efforts are vital for those on the frontline and those at home.” People across the world appreciate sanitation workers for their services.
In the series, the company also honored those who made the practice of ‘farm to table’ possible in the global pandemic. From saluting the farmworkers and farmers who are working tirelessly to make sure there is enough food, to the store workers as well.
Google also honed the distribution sector for ensuring that the supply chain remains functional. This also included food industry workers who, despite usually being closed to dine-in facilities, are currently focusing on delivery services.

Doodle for educators and childcare workers
Although educational institutions have been closed and most students have been forced to stay at home, many teachers have not been relieved of their duties as online classes continue across the world. The doodle depicts a teacher wearing glasses, a blue mortarboard, and a gown delivering a lecture via video conferencing. Whereas in the previous doodles of the series the service provider’s face was covered with a mask to highlight the importance of wearing one, the professor does not wear one, indicating that he is at home.
In its blog post, the company stressed that it didn’t only have essential service workers in mind when starting the chain, as it is inspired by individuals who have helped in their own small ways through acts of kindness.
“Beyond the efforts of essential workers, ‘help’ has become more than a concept, a wish or unusual action. Help has become a part of our daily lives.” Therefore, with this series the company wanted to acknowledge and harness the power of kindness and compassion – “because where there is help, there is hope.”
