Thank You Coronavirus Helpers: Google Doodle pays tribute

The search engine giant has been using its main webpage to send messages of thanks to those at the front line of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Thank You Coronavirus Helpers: Google Doodle pays tribute

Anyone who uses the world’s most popular search engine - there are around 3.5 billion Google searches each day - will more than likely be aware of the Google Doodles (if not get the story here). Every day we get to see a different doodle next to where the search bar sits and these give a nod in the direction of someone or something special related with the moment.

Well now, amid the global coronavirus pandemic, Google’s Doodles are sending a strong message of love and thanks to the medical teams and others that are working to keep us all healthy and to keep our daily lives going as smoothly as possible.

Google Doodle for the Covid-19 front lines

"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 recognise and honour many of those on the front lines." This was the statement from the digital behemoth as they launched the initiative.

The images show an emoji of a heart which is being sent from the ‘G’ in the Google characters to the various frontline teams created out of the letter ‘e’. There has been one issued to researchers and scientists who are working hard to find a vaccine; another to all those in the healthcare industry; then more to emergency service workers, sanitary employees, farmers, and those that are keeping our supermarkets and grocery stores going.

Still to come are more ‘thank yous’ to honour schools and education workers and food transit services among others.

Keep you eyes open and remember to thank these people when you get your own chance…
