Google is saying thank you to all coronavirus helpers with a series of Google Doodles over the next two weeks.

To honor public health workers and researchers in the scientific community for their tireless work on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic, Google’s landing page looks a bit different today. If you visit Google.com, instead of the usual search engine fare, you’ll see Google’s logo has been transformed into one with emergency services workers when the day before, it used to be an animation of a heart floating to a researcher to represent our collective gratitude during this global crisis.

To recognize the global surge in “searches for how to thank healthcare workers,” Google released a “Thank You” video aimed at the medical professionals “sacrificing so much to save so many.” The video ends on the important note of how we can “help save lives by staying home” and a link to the google.com/covid19 information and resources site.

“Over the next two weeks, our Doodles will honor other essential frontline workers, including healthcare workers, first responders, and the many people keeping services like sanitation, food service, public transit, schools, and more up and running. Thank you to all the people who are working to save lives and keep communities safe during this pandemic.” the tech company says.

During this time of global crisis, it is crucial that we heed information from the most accurate sources and curb the spread of misinformation about the virus.
