Google launched an educational website on coronavirus in the United States
Google debuted an educational website on the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, which focuses on providing accurate information on education, prevention, and local resources.
The site is designed to highlight information from “authoritative” sources at the front of the pandemic response, like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, to gather information on data visualization, safety and prevention, relief efforts, and resources for affected individuals and businesses.
The launch coincided with a major uptick in cases of the virus identified in the US, where there are cases in every state and 274 deaths as of March 21. The virus has dominated global searches on the platform, according to Google.
