Apple has launched a new iPhone app and MacBook website that provide the latest information and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
These resources will allow Apple device owners to stay up to date and take appropriate measures to protect their health during the spread of coronavirus. The COVID-19 app and website allow users to answer a number of questions about risk factors, recent exposure, and symptoms. In turn, they will receive recommendations from the CDC on the next steps, including guidance on social distance and self-isolation, how to closely monitor symptoms, whether it is recommended to conduct a test, and whether to go to the hospital.
The app and website also provide access to official resources to help people stay up to date and get reliable information. Users will receive answers to frequently asked questions about COVID-19, including who is at greatest risk and how to recognize the symptoms. In addition, they learn the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control, such as recommendations on hand washing, surface disinfection, and symptom monitoring.
Along with the new application and COVID-19 website, customers throughout the United States may also ask Siri, “How do I know if I have a coronavirus?” After that, a personal assistant will offer you to answer “yes” or “no” to several questions that will help determine your condition.
