Google is expressing gratitude to all ‘coronavirus warriors’ using a series of animated doodles and Wednesday’s doodle was a note of thanks to all the “packaging, shipping, and delivery workers” around the globe.
Although many cities around the globe are under lockdown, delivery personnel are making sure essential items are shipped and delivered on time, making it possible for people to “stay home”.
The animated doodle displayed on the search engine’s homepage showed the e from Google wearing a mask and sitting in a delivery truck, while the first letter is G was shaped like a customer. After the package is delivered, the customer sends ‘love’ and gratitude to the essential worker.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities around the world, people are coming together to help one another now more than ever,” the company wrote in its blog.
The tech company wrote, “Today, we’d like to say: To all packaging, shipping, and delivery workers, thank you.”
“Over the next two weeks, our Doodles will honour other essential frontline workers, including healthcare workers, first responders, and the many people keeping services like sanitation, food service, public transit, schools, and more up and running. Thank you to all the people who are working to save lives and keep communities safe during this pandemic,” the company had while said starting their ‘Thank You Coronavirus Helpers’ series.
