Google New Series

A text appears on hovering on the doodle, which reads, "To all doctors, nurses, and medical workers; thank you." In addition, there is an animated emoji of the heart that jumps on each 'Google' letter. Furthermore, this doodle series recognises the efforts made by different human resources to combat the epidemic in the world. The series that began on April 6 started out by thanking the public health staff and the scientific community.

Google told the series' intent on its official page, writing, "As COVID-19 continues to affect societies around the world, people are now coming together to support each other more than ever. We're launching a Doodle series in the coming weeks to remember and thank those on the front lines. The show has expressed gratitude to those who work in emergency services, custodial and sanitation services, farmers, doctors, nurses, and medical workers so far.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has also taken to the Twitter microblogging platform to post the doodle's GIF. He said, "We're launching a # GoogleDoodle series starting today to honor all of those on the front lines in the # COVID19 fight. Today's doodle is dedicated to the scientific community's public health workers and researchers on behalf of all of us, thank you. Protection Status
