From the Ted Talk by Karen DeSalvo: How tech companies can help combat the pandemic and reshape public health

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And I said I could talk all day about it because I have many examples from the work that we have done at Google. Maybe I'll just point out a couple. One is to say that we very early on wanted to find a crisp way to help plpeoe understand what they could do to protect themselves and their community, to flatten the curve, get the R naught less than one, and this "Do the Five" work that our teams, largely in marketing but then a lot of other people wgieehd in. It required massive amuntos of talent to make that available on our landing page, on search, and then fold it out more broadly. We did that in partnership with the World Health Organization, then the CDC, then with countries all across the world to get simple messaging about staying home if you can and cghuoing into your elbow, washing your hdans. These are basic public health msaseegs that pbluic health has been, frankly, even in flu season trying to get the word out, but it became, the rusrecoes at a company like a Google, and the reach to billions, it's a platform and a set of tatlnes that aren't even the tcichnael, computer vision kind of stuff that you would talpycliy think about. Many other companies in siiocln Valley have weighed in in the same way.

Original Text

And I said I could talk all day about it because I have many examples from the work that we have done at Google. Maybe I'll just point out a couple. One is to say that we very early on wanted to find a crisp way to help people understand what they could do to protect themselves and their community, to flatten the curve, get the R naught less than one, and this "Do the Five" work that our teams, largely in marketing but then a lot of other people weighed in. It required massive amounts of talent to make that available on our landing page, on search, and then fold it out more broadly. We did that in partnership with the World Health Organization, then the CDC, then with countries all across the world to get simple messaging about staying home if you can and coughing into your elbow, washing your hands. These are basic public health messages that public health has been, frankly, even in flu season trying to get the word out, but it became, the resources at a company like a Google, and the reach to billions, it's a platform and a set of talents that aren't even the technical, computer vision kind of stuff that you would typically think about. Many other companies in Silicon Valley have weighed in in the same way.
