Google recently published a Doodle to underscore the importance of staying home during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

"Stay . Save Lives," the search giant shared on Friday, along with a drawing that depicts some of the tasks people can do to stay busy including reading, working out and playing music.

The letters in Google's logo are shown as animated characters inside houses. The first G is reading a book, one of the Os is singing while the other plays an instrument. G and E are talking on the phone while the L lifts weights.

The tech giant has also launched a dedicated section for official coronavirus guidance. If you search "coronavirus tips" on Google.com, you'll see an alert page showing where the disease has spread to. It also offers some general questions and five tips to slow the spread of the outbreak.

The basic protective measures against coronavirus include:

1. HANDS Wash them often

2. ELBOW Cough into it

3. FACE Don't touch it

4. FEET Stay more than 3 feet apart

5. FEEL sick? Stay home
