See How Google’s COVID-19 Website And Tools Work To Give Verified Information

Google has finally launched its website and tools to provide users with verified COVID-19 information after its subsidiary, Verily released one for the California Bay Area. This new website is available for everyone in the US as against that of Verily that caters to only a specific location.

 

Google released the educational website on Saturday 21st March 2020. On its right side, users can access various links to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This provides them with information about COVID-19 in the United States as well as symptoms and testing.

 

Also, for coronavirus advisory information, condition overview and questions & answers, there is a link to the World Health Organization page.

 

The Google website provides short information on such things as overview, symptoms, prevention and treatment. Interestingly, under the treatment, it mentions that there is no treatment for coronavirus yet. Instead, it says:

 

“If you develop a fever, cough, and have difficulty breathing, promptly seek medical care. Call in advance and tell your health provider of any recent travel or recent contact with travelers.”
