The Apple Company confirmed the launching of its latest application and website, which provides screening and medical information on Covid-19. This follows after the Apple Company partnered with the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention, the Federal Government and Emergency Management Agency. All three parties provided Apple with accurate information on the coronavirus. Those downloading the application will be provided detailed data on Covid-19 and what requirements are necessary to receive testing. Additional information includes local emergency service numbers.
The Screening Application on iOS requests that users provide detailed information on potential symptoms. Additional data will be required with previous health-related problems. This extends towards providing information on your local or international travel from the last month. After all data is entered, users are offered appropriate measures for their next steps. Individuals assessed as potential coronavirus carries will be immediately transferred to medical services nearby.
Those that aren’t infected with Covid-19 could still be concerned about how to protect themselves. That’s why this application and extension website will provide suggestions for personal protection. Those suggestions will include washing your hands and practising social distancing. This application is primarily a compacted version of information we’ve learned since January.
Unlike the majority of applications supported by the Apple Company, this version won’t require users to register with their account identification. Responses and information provided through this Covid-19 Informal Application won’t be delivered to Apple’s servers. This will ensure that consumers are offered medical secrecy, which is law across North America and Europe.
It should be noted that foundations for this application were released to Siri during Mid-March. Individuals requesting information from Siri on Covid-19 would receive similar responses shown on this application. There have been numerous smartphone manufacturers to provide reliable information portals for this pandemic. It’s enabled hundreds of thousands to relieve their concerns somewhat. Though solutions are slowly starting to roll out for the novel coronavirus, this battle won’t be over for a prolonged period.
North America and the European Union aren’t expected to see declining cases of Covid-19 until June. That could potentially extend towards Mid-July or Early-August. Providing these informal sources will allow more citizens to become educated, which ensures less exposure to Covid-19.
