The entire world is currently facing the wrath of the ongoing health crisis. Everyone has fallen to the knees with the surge in the cases. The second wave has hit and many say that it is 2020 all over again. Many countries across the globe are undergoing lockdown to curb the spread of infections.

Owing to the rising positive cases and casualty toll, everyone is being urged to follow the safety guidelines to not get infected. Now, the tech giant Google has jumped on the bandwagon to promote health safety. To highlight the importance of face masks and social distancing, the renowned search engine has put up an animated doodle.

Speaking of the same, the simple yet effective animation sees the letter of the word Google in its regular avatar first. Later, each of these letters transforms into moving characters while donning colourful masks.


In the next transition, the letter of the word Google spread out to increase the space between them. It is an animated way to promote the importance of social distancing to curb the spread of the disease.

It doesn’t end here, the animated Google doodle is also accompanied by a note. The message on the note reads, Wear a mask. Save lives.

On the homepage of the search engine, the animated colourful doodle reads, “Masks are still important. Wear a mask and save lives”, if one places the cursor above it.

The Google page then explains, in brief, the importance of wearing a mask and also lists out a few steps on another page about how to break the chain of the ongoing worldwide health crisis.

The list includes the basic information which has been of importance for the past whole year. The list asks one to clean hands with soap and water or use sanitizers.

It also asks one to maintain a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing. The page suggests one wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.

The safety guidelines also ask one to not touch their eyes, nose, or mouth without washing hands or sanitizing them. Last but not the least, it asks a person to seek medical help if facing any difficulty in breathing or have any of the symptoms related to the viral infection.
