Ask Siri, get help to diagnose coronavirus
New York : In the latest update, Siri is now providing a questionnaire using US Public Health Service and CDC data) when users ask if they have the COVID-19 infection.
Now, when the users will ask Siri about the questions on coronavirus, it will ask back if they're exhibiting systems, which include fever or respiratory problems, and advising them, if infected, in the meanwhile to avoid contact with others.
If the symptoms match and look serious then the system ask its users to call 911, redirecting them to the Apple App Store to download telehealth apps so they may also remotely consult with healthcare professionals. Outside the U.S., users will be directed towards national health resources instead.
Apple released a COVID-19 symptom triage tool within Siri. Ask “how do I know if I have coronavirus?” and it’ll walk you through a CDC-approved flow.— Alexis Córdova (@acordova) March 21, 2020
