Covid-19: Google doodle urges people to get vaccinated and wear masks | India News


NEW DELHI: Google Doodle on Saturday urged people to get vaccinated and wear masks, as Covid-19 cases continue to report a record rise in India and other countries.
The alphabets ‘G’, ‘O’, ‘O’, ‘G’ scrawled as citizens seemed excited to show off their Band-Aids. The ‘E’ caricatured as a health professional vaccinated to ‘L’ who then raises her arms to show the band-aid. Then a happy ‘E’ is seen giving a heart emoticon to all vaccinated alphabets.
The Google Doodle in its note said that “the pandemic continues to affect communities around the world, help stop the spread by finding a local vaccine site” and follow the steps for prevention.
Google Doodle also shared resources on how to find the closest vaccine site and what steps people can take to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
You can google ‘covid vaccine near me’ to find a local vaccine center and for prevention guidelines, type ‘covid-19 prevention’ into the search engine.
The scope of Saturday’s doodle was limited to India, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Armenia, Pakistan and Indonesia.
Without a respite from the global surge in coronavirus cases, the vaccine is seen as a crucial step in immunizing citizens against the disease that has caused more than 3 million deaths.
India is currently the hardest hit country with more than 3 billion new cases and 3,000 deaths reported every day for the past week as the country battles a second deadly wave.
Globally, the United States of America has recorded the highest number of total deaths, where more than 576,000 people have succumbed to the disease. The total death toll in India stood at 208,330 on Saturday morning.
