Google has already launched its COVID-19 information website and also, Apple has followed this – they have introduced a screening website which informs user about what can be done to contain the speed of the virus.
Now, both the tech giants are coming with their own websites, it is natural for someone to get confused between the two. Hence, here in this article we take a look at how both these websites are similar and different from each other.
Google’s coronavirus information website
We should mention here that Google’s website gives all the information one needs as far as coronavirus is concerned. This website informs you about the virus and it also gives information about how this spreads. Also, this gives you tabs for symptoms, prevention and treatment. Apart from this, if one needs more information, there are direct links which redirects you to World Health Organisation (WHO) website as well as a Q&A tab.
Google is also using its other platforms such as YouTube and has put YouTube videos on the website for better context. There are also Search and Trends integration tabs as the firm is providing state-wise healthcare details but only in the United States.
Apple’s COVID-19 information website and app
Apple’s COVID-19 information website was rolled out today and there is a dedicated app for the same. Both the Apple website and the app give you the same information. The primary aim is to make more users aware about the pandemic.
The website also asks a number of questions which will determine if you are having the disease or not. There are a number of replies to choose from and on the basis of the result, the website gives up the different steps which can be done to curb the spread or if they need to consult a doctor at the earliest.
