Website From Google For Coronavirus Screening !! How True Is The News?
More than an hour after Trump’s news conference, a Google communications Twitter account passed along the subsequent statement from Verily, which may be a different company inside the Alphabet corporate umbrella:
We are developing a tool to assist triage individuals for COVID-19 testing.
Verily is within the early stages of development, and getting to roll testing call at the Bay Area, with the hope of expanding more broadly over time.
We appreciate the support of state officials and industry partners and thank the Google engineers who have volunteered to be a part of this effort, the tool will only be ready to direct people to “pilot sites” for testing within the Bay Area, though Wang says Verily hopes to expand it beyond California “over time.
“Google goes to develop an internet site — it’s getting to be very quickly done, unlike websites of the past — to work out if a test is warranted and to facilitate testing at a close-by convenient location,” Trump said at the news conference.
“We have many, many locations behind us, by the way.
We cover this country and enormous parts of the planet, by the way. We’re not going to be talking about the planet immediately, but we cover very, very strongly our country.
Stores in virtually every location. Google has 1,700 engineers performing on this immediately.
They need to be made tremendous progress.
As for the 1,700 Google engineers Trump referenced within the news conference, that appears to be associated with an involve volunteers Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai put the call at a company-wide memo earlier in the week.
Nobody from Alphabet or Google spoke at the event, although many executives from other health and retail companies did.
As Birx described the website, citizens would be ready to enter their symptoms and, counting on what the results are, be directed to a “drive-thru” testing facility.
That very same website would apparently even be where people can attend find their results.
