US-based technology giant Apple shared a web page where people can take a coronavirus test by answering questions given at home. At this point, Apple advises people based on the answers to questions about COVID-19.
The new type of coronavirus, which appeared in Wuhan, China at the end of last year, spread in a short time and affected the whole world. In our country, institutions and organizations take measures to combat the virus, the number of cases of which continues to increase day by day. An important support to this struggle, which was attended by many private companies, came from Apple.
The US company, which had to close its factories in China in the early days of the coronavirus, published a page on its website where users can test for coronavirus. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly this page is and its details.
Apple says what needs to be done by asking users critical questions:
On the newly published page, Apple decides whether people are in danger, based on the answers to questions about COVID-19. Here are some of the questions Apple asked:
Do you have one or more of the symptoms of constant chest pain, excessive breathing, constant headache, speech impairment, difficulty waking up? (If you have at least one of these symptoms, you should contact your healthcare provider.)
How old are you?
Do you experience any of these symptoms?
Do you have any conditions such as pregnancy, asthma, obesity?
Have you traveled abroad in the last 14 days?
Have you been in an area where COVID-19 is common in the past 14 days?
Have you contacted someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
Do you live or work in a nursing facility?
In line with the answers given, Apple lists the steps you need to follow. Things to do at this point include isolating yourself from others, resting and eating healthy, or applying to your doctor.
Of course, we can not say that the test carried out on this website definitely made the correct diagnosis, but it is also worth noting that it is necessary not to give up the measure. You can also go to the site through this link to learn this COVID-19 test provided by Apple, and learn the precautions you should take or the steps you need to follow. At this point, let’s add that the Ministry of Health has created a similar site and you can learn the information about that site from our content here.
