Apple contributes to contain the crisis of the Corona virus

Egyptian News Vision: - The tech giant, the American company Apple, contributed to containing the global crisis, and the international efforts in trapping the new Corona virus, Covid 19, where it launched an application to diagnose the infection with the virus.

Siri application from Apple helps users to identify infection with Corona virus.

Siri works on iPhones to answer user questions about the Corona virus and helps diagnose people with the disease.

The update began to appear on "Siri", and now when you ask the voice assistant if you are infected with the Coronavirus, he will answer questions answered "yes" or "no" about symptoms, based on information from the US Public Health Service.

Siri will first ask if you have a fever, dry cough or shortness of breath, and depending on your answer, the voice assistant may also ask if you have any contact with anyone diagnosed with the symptoms of the Coronavirus.

Answer yes to "Siri" questions, and you will be directed to receive immediate attention.

If you tell Siri that you are not sure about your symptoms, he will advise you to be alert to any indications of infection of Corona, which can appear up to 14 days after infection with the virus.

"Siri" advises users aged 65 years or over with serious medical conditions such as diabetes or heart and lung diseases to contact a medical service provider.

In addition to diagnosing a range of basic symptoms, the new Corona Virus feature in Siri includes the App Store app’s link to Telehealth apps that promise “to help you communicate with your healthcare provider from your home,” and it’s assumed that the built-in apps have already been checked Apple App Store staff.

"Apple" is the latest technology company to intensify its efforts to provide information about the Corona virus, at a time when incomplete or misleading data on the epidemic is being published on social media.

Apple's efforts to tackle the Corona virus were not limited to Siri, as the company added to its TV service, Apple TV Plus, a new TV show, "Oprah Talks COVID-19", where it is considered an opera.

Winfrey interviews experts and others affected by the Corona Virus pandemic, and the first episode contains an interview with actor Idris Elba and his wife, Sabrina Douri, who have been infected with Corona Virus, and episodes of this program will be shown weekly, according to his webpage.

Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote on Twitter saying that his company donated millions of "N95" masks for use by health professionals struggling with disease outbreaks in the United States and Europe, after those masks became scarce.

Google had launched the Corona portal, with a focus on education, prevention and local resources, and the Google Assistant voice assistant could also direct users to information about the Corona virus even on iPhones.
