Covid-19 Crisis: Google’s new feature, information about beds and oxygen availability
Covid-19 Crisis. In the midst of the growing outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, Google has now started working on a new feature, which can be of great help to the people. People will now get the latest information about the availability of beds and medical oxygen on Google Maps. Also, with the help of this new feature of Google, people can ask for information related to these things and will also be able to share information in this regard with others. Significantly, the second wave of corona infection in the country is now appalling and around four lakh people are getting infected every day and around 4000 people are dying every day.
This is how Google’s new feature will work
In Google’s new feature, whenever a user is in a hospital or a place where oxygen is supplied, the user will ask questions related to the availability of beds and medical oxygen. The information given by that user will also be able to be used by other people, who want to come to the same hospital or oxygen supplier. However, before giving information to the users, it will be necessary to verify it first. Users will also use Google Maps to verify. Actually, phone numbers of hospitals and oxygen centers are also given in Google Maps.
In such a situation, wherever the information of beds or oxygen is shown to the users, before going to the place, they can find out the related information by calling through the number on the Google map. Significantly, Google Maps is currently helping to share the location of 23,000 COVID-19 vaccination centers across the country, in which it is also helping users in local languages.
Work on three things
Google’s team says that we are working on three things with priority in the midst of increasing the risk of corona infection. The first is to ensure that people receive the freshest and most verified information, and the second is to promote important messages related to safety and immunization and the third is to provide financial assistance to the affected communities, health authorities, and other organizations.
