Google search terms since first COVID-19 confirmed case on Nov 17, 2019

20200517u Santa Cruz, CA: Looking back to Dec. 22, 2019, I read a research paper today that said “shortness of breath” began increasing in WeChat searches beginning Dec. 22, 2019. So, I was curious how searches on Google have been. Of the Topics I searched, “Infection” seems to be the Google Topic that most represents the COVID-19 pandemic. I did notice that the Topic “Cough” hit a 5 year high on Dec. 22, 2019. The Topics “Pneumonia” and “Infection” jumped a month later on Jan. 20, 2020. While most of the Topics I looked into have now gone back down close to pre-pandemic levels, “Infection” is still a hot Topic.

In other events, on this Dec. 22, 2019, a rally was held in Hong Kong to show support for the Uighur minority in China. How related these masks are to the masks that are coming will only be understood in the future.
