The Facebook-owned social messaging platform has introduced ‘Stay Home’ stickers for Instagram Stories that users can use to mark that they are staying at home and by extension safe during the ongoing pandemic.

Big tech companies are taking proactive measures for providing accurate information and creating awareness about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. While Google has launched a new website and Microsoft has launched a Bing-powered tracker, Facebook is making Messenger tools available for free to governments and healthcare agencies as they combat the virus outbreak. Now, Instagram has introduced a new way using which users can show solidarity for the cause.
