Friday’s Google Doodle is all about how you can help contain the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic. With an animated illustration, Google is encouraging users to follow the WHO guidelines in preventing COVID-19.

The doodle for the day is an animated series of letters that make up the word Google, as characters, and shows every alphabet engaged in some activity. One is reading a book while another is working out. One is playing the guitar whereas another is catching up with friends over their phones.

Clicking on the doodle takes you to a dedicated hub for Coronavirus tips and instructs to “Stay home. Save lives. As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, help stop the spread by following these steps.”

The steps are —

Stay Home
Keep a safe distance
Wash hands often
Cover your cough
Sick? Call the helpline

These steps are also further explained with additions like washing hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub, covering the nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when sneezing or coughing. And the likes of that.

Other than these tips, the destination page from the doodle also shows statistics about the spread of the virus. A map shows the number of COVID-19 cases around the world, the number of recovered patients and the death toll.

The page also explains what the coronavirus really is and how it spreads.

Coronavirus cases touched a million in the world with over 50,000 dead. On a note of positivity though more than 200,000 have recovered from the virus.
