Apple updates Siri to provide a coronavirus questionnaire to help sick users

Apple’s response to Alphabet’s Verily comes in the form of their voice assistant Siri. Users who consult Siri regarding their sickness will be provided a questionnaire asking about potential symptoms such as respiratory symptoms or fever. Following US Public Health Service and CDC data, Siri will suggest contacting 911 if symptoms are rated as severe and insist users avoid others.
