NEW DELHI: In a public service announcement, Google Doodle on Tuesday urged people to wear masks and save lives as Covid-19 cases rise in the country.
By putting a mask on all their alphabets, Google shared information resources so that people know and understand how they can prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
In a simple message, Google Doodle reminded everyone to “wear a face cover, wash your hands, and keep a safe distance.”
To make the correct information about Covid-19 more accessible, the squiggle leads readers to a “more information” option that directs to the website of the ministry of child and family development.
