Google this weekend launched a website dedicated to providing authoritative information on the coronavirus pandemic. The site — google.com/covid19 — offers health information, prevention tips, a map of areas affected by COVID-19, links to local health agencies and other resources. Google said 

“As coronavirus becomes a challenge in more communities and as authorities around the world develop new guidance and tools to address the pandemic, we’ll continue to find more opportunities to connect people with key information to keep themselves, their families, and their communities safe,” Google’s Emily Moxley said in a blog post. 

The site launched in the US on Saturday, and Google said it’ll be available in more languages and countries in the “coming days.” Google also said the site will continue to be updated as more resources become available. 

More to come.
