The rapidly spreading Novel Coronavirus has recorded over 20 lakh cases globally as of today, and most nations are under complete or partial lockdown. People all across the globe are waiting for the Coronavirus epidemic to tide over, spending time at home with their family and loved ones. There are some service providers, however, who are putting their lives at risk in these testing times to make sure everyone is safe and at home. Hospital staff, doctors, nurses, delivery staff, police force, food services, farmers - these are a few of the people providing the public with the essential services they need irrespective of their personal safety.
Google has started a series of illustrations aimed to acknowledge these very workers, who are continuing their great effort and prioritising their work commitments even in spite of the lockdown and their personal risk. Their tireless work is what keeps us going as a community, which is exactly what Google seeks to honour in their illustrative series. The latest Google Doodle made an appreciative gesture towards applauding the commendable effort of the food service workers on the frontlines. Take a look at the doodle:
