Apple Updates Siri to Screen for the COVID19 Corona Virus

Apple Siri
Apple has updated Siri, its virtual digital assistant, to screen for the COVID19 virus.

To use the new feature, just ask Siri, "Do I have the Corona Virus?"

Siri will then ask a series of Yes/No screening questions developed based on CDC criteria. 

Users who answer "yes" to these questions, like those referencing COVID-19 symptoms, are advised to self-isolate, monitor the situation, or contact a medical provider if the condition worsens, are age 65 or over, or have a serious medical condition.

Siri can be found on Apple's iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS, and tvOS operating systems and devices.
