Google has said that the search related to Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) has been the most trending searches around the world since the Coronavirus was announced Pandemic by WHO which currently has more than 275,000 confirmed cases leading to more than 11,000 deaths in more than 160 countries around the world.
On Friday, the company launched its new portal dedicated to news, safety tips, official stats and much more related to Coronavirus which sends users to onsite links and other links that provide the dedicated information.
“This new format organizes the search results page to help people easily navigate information and resources, and it will also make it possible to add more information over time as it becomes available,” Emily Moxley, Google’s product manager for search, writes in a blog post.
When COVID-19 was declared a public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) in late January, Google launched an SOS Alert with resources and safety information from the WHO, along with the latest news.
The alert has launched in 25 languages across dozens of countries, and people in more than 50 countries can access localized public health guidance from health authorities. Currently, the portal offers information related to the United States.
