In search results for coronavirus outbreak search, Google has enabled the SOS warning.
SOS alerts introduced by Google in 2017, which could jeopardize public safety are enabled during crisis events. These are intended to help searchers with the latest news, links to reliable tools and useful security tips by offering an ad-free search results page.
Now, for searches related to the coronavirus, this is what the search results page will look like:
Google explains in a help document how it sources content for SOS alerts:
“We have teams around the world who source content from government agencies, first responders, trusted media outlets, and NGOs. We also aggregate information from other Google products and services, such as Google News, Google Maps, Waze, and more.”
Google is showing the same alerts globally for the coronavirus outbreak, but they may be localized over time if needed.
