Apple backs Stanford to build COVID-19 screening app for first responders

As first responders also increasingly test positive for coronavirus, it has become a high priority to introduce measures that can help with prevention or early detection.

Stanford Medicine has developed a new app, the First Responder COVID-19 Guide, to help first responders screen their symptoms and schedule an appointment with Stanford Health Care if necessary, the official release notes.

The new screening and information app was built with the support of Apple, the local police, firefighters and paramedics. The app requires first responders to complete a questionnaire about their symptoms, exposure to coronavirus, and medical history, and suggest based on responses. (ANI)
