New York :
The technology company Google announced its top search trends of the year and transcended Kobe bryant, who tragically passed away in early 2020, ranked third in the United States, only below “election results” Y “coronavirus”.
Bryant, who died last January in a plane crash when the helicopter in which he was traveling with his daughter and seven other people crashed, received countless tributes and was in the news for most of the year.
Google argued that trending results are searches that had a high increase in traffic over a sustained period in 2020 compared to the previous year.
