Google Doodle’s quirky appreciation for those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle was initially shared by Google during the first phase of the coronavirus induced lockdown in India. On April 6, Google had launched a two week Doodle series titled ‘Thank You: Coronavirus Helpers’ to recognise and honour all those who have exceeded their call of duty by putting their own lives at risk—to provide services to keep things functional under unprecedented circumstances.

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 recognize and honor many of those on the front lines. Today, we’d like to say: To all coronavirus helpers, thank you, Google had posted on its website.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted about the series, “Starting today, we’re launching a #GoogleDoodle series to honor many of those on the front lines in the fight against #COVID19. Today’s doodle is dedicated to the public health workers and researchers in the scientific community – on behalf of all of us, thank you.”

As part of the doodle series, each doodle was dedicated to one of the COVID warriors. For instance, on April 16, Google Doodle made an appreciative gesture towards applauding the commendable effort of the food service workers on the frontlines. Take a look at the quirky google doodle:

As with all of our Doodles, we hope the series allows for helpers everywhere to feel seen, heard, and valued and for everyone to remember there will be a light at the end of what could feel like a long tunnel. Because where there’s help, there’s hope, Jessica Yu, Doodle Team Lead, had stated in an official blog post.

Google has been spreading awareness through its Doodles and on social media by putting out precautions against the deadly virus and the dos and don’ts in the fight against COVID-19. On August 5, the Google Doodle was dedicated to one of the basic COVID-19 preventive measures – wearing a face mask. The animated doodle featured G-O-O-G-L-E that were shown to develop legs, wear masks of different colours and patterns and observe social distancing to keep themselves and everyone else safe. The doodle linked out to a public service announcement (PSA) – ‘Wear a mask. Save lives. Wear a face cover. Wash your hands. Keep a safe distance.’

NDTV – Dettol Banega Swasth India campaign is an extension of the five-year-old Banega Swachh India initiative helmed by Campaign Ambassador Amitabh Bachchan. It aims to spread awareness about critical health issues facing the country. In wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign highlights the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children to prevent maternal and child mortality, fight malnutrition, stunting, wasting, anaemia and disease prevention through vaccines. Importance of programmes like Public Distribution System (PDS), Mid-day Meal Scheme, POSHAN Abhiyan and the role of Aganwadis and ASHA workers are also covered. Only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and become a Swasth or healthy India. The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene
