Last night, slightly ahead of schedule, Verily introduced its much-discussed coronavirus evaluating website. On the site, which is only offered in parts of the Bay Area, users can describe their signs and Verily will then direct them to a testing website if necessary. After just a couple of hours online, however, the site has actually already lacked visits.
” Visits will continue to broaden through this program as we scale capability in the future. Please inspect back later on,” the site now states, however just after you’ve gone through the majority of the questionnaire.
It’s undoubtedly not Verily’s fault that the state’s testing sites are at capability and, if anything, this proves the requirement for a service like this on a national scale.
Originally, in an interview on Friday, President Trump said a website Google was dealing with was going to be the core feature of a nationwide testing technique. That story altered quite a bit over the weekend as Google and Verily clarified their efforts and it ended up being clear that the White Home overpromised, but Verily then released its pilot site ahead of schedule on Sunday night.
We have actually asked Verily for more information and will upgrade this post once we hear more.
