Google honors frontline workers with doodles

By Noreen Jazul

Google has been releasing doodles in honor of all workers in the frontlines of the world's battle against the coronavirus pandemic.


The search engine started its doodle series thanking frontliners last April 16.

“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,” Google said.

On April 6, Google honored all public health workers and researchers in the scientific community.

Google dedicated its April 7 doodle to doctors, nurses, and medical workers.

The following days Google thanked emergency services workers (April 8), custodial and sanitation workers (April 9), and farmworkers and farmers (April 10).

Today, April 13, Google made a salute to all grocery workers.

“Thank you to all the people who are working to save lives and keep communities safe during this pandemic,” Google said.
