Alphabet Inc's Google launched a US-focused website on coronavirus or COVID-19 guidance and testing on Saturday as the nation starts working on slowing down the containment of the deadly virus.
The website which focusses on links and resources on the deadly respiratory illness is going to be available in many languages and also in different other countries in the coming days, as stated by Google in a blog post.

Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai said in a blog post last Sunday that the search giant was partnering with the US government to create a website by March 16. However, the launch was delayed as local and national guidance changed significantly from Sunday to Monday and the company had said it would roll out the website later in the week.
