Apple Launch Covid-19 self-screening App & Website | How to use
"The self-screening tool for CoronaVirus has been developed in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House-led coronavirus task force and the Federal Emergency Management Agency."
Apple has released a new website and app that will provide a screening tool for Covid-19 (CoronaVirus) symptoms. The self-screening tool has been developed in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House-led coronavirus task force and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The app, which will be available in the app store as “COVID-19,” will ask users questions about symptoms, location and risk factors and then provide the appropriate up-to-date guidance from the CDC, White House officials said.
The Covid-19 app will also answer frequently asked questions about the coronavirus disease with official information from the CDC. The same information will be available at a website that will be accessible to the users of Windows PCs, Android phones, and other non-Apple devices.
The tool is a sort of guide on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, recommendations on testing, and when to contact a medical provider. Apple clearly mentions that the self-screening tool is designed to be a “resource for individuals” and “does not replace instructions from healthcare providers or guidance from state and local health authorities.”
Although the website and app are designed for American users, anyone from across the world can take advantage of the self-screening coronavirus tool. Neither the app nor website requires users to sign in with an Apple ID. Apple says users’ individual responses will not be sent to Apple or any government organization.
