Coronavirus in Search

While some schools and businesses had started the precautious measures a couple of weeks ago, many businesses entered the 15 days “social distancing” measures this past Monday in the USA including Connecticut. All non-essential businesses including restaurants are ordered to shut down except the ones with drive-through or take-out orders. Essential businesses including pharmacies, medical offices, and grocery stores are operating limited hours and restrictions including limiting access to the building. While these are necessary measures, it definitely adds stress to everyone, besides the fact that you cannot find any toilet papers, paper towels, hand sanitizer, etc. anywhere.

This is not a post related to SEO or search marketing in general. I just want to keep some search trends and queries from the USA, Australia, Japan, and Singapore for future reference.
