Yahoo India on April 24 released a list that highlighted the shift in online search trends in the month before and after the country went into lockdown.
India went into lockdown in light of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic on March 25, which was later extended until May 3. During this period, internet users in the country increasingly searched for things related to coronavirus.
"Through the lockdown, novel coronavirus related searches rose by a whopping 427 percent. The top five COVID-19 keywords were COVID-19 updates, symptoms of COVID-19, COVID-19 treatment, COVID-19 death toll and Live COVID-19 tracker," Yahoo India reported.
