We cannot deny that smartphones help us a lot on a day-to-day basis, but we cannot deny that they are used to disseminate false information. That, in the case of diseases (Coronavirus as an example), is extremely dangerous. Therefore Google has decided to limit the search results in its application store, so that there are no people who try to profit from this epidemic. Now, if you tried to type the name of the epidemic in the Play store, nothing will appear.
Is Google censoring the coronavirus in the Play Store?
Due to this movement, Google has created an exclusive section. This new section includes really useful applications if we want to look for information about this disease, and applications that simply try to profit from it will not appear.
Both on the website of Google Play Store and the application will have banners that will give you access to this section.
According to Android Police, this section varies according to each country, something logical if we understand that there will be local applications that help the population, and each government will have its own, in addition to differing in languages.
However, this update may take some time to arrive. In my case, I have it active on the website but it has not yet appeared in the application I use on my Android mobile.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi has decided to help Italy by sending thousands for masks. We know that Coronavirus has begun to spread throughout the world. But some countries are more affected than others, such as Italy. The virus is highly contagious in this European country. The situation in Italy regarding the Coronavirus is not encouraging since it has begun to spread more and more, to the extent that there seems to be no way to stop it in the near future.
