Verify from Alphabet on this Sunday night has launched the pilot of a website of COVID-19 testing and screening in the Bay Area of San Francisco a day before it said it is going to do that. To be able to qualify for the screening, it is going to require the users for having an account for Google and agreeing for the information being shared potentially with Google.
This website has been a collaboration between the company of biotechnology based in Bay Area and the office of the governor of California and the other officials of local, state and federal. The website is a multi-step process though which lets the Californians take the screener survey which is going to direct the patients for testing sites in the countries of Santa Clara and San Mateo. For them to be eligible, users have to be a minimum of 18 years old, said a United States resident able to speak and also be able to read English which is located in one of the countries available and also willing to be signing the authorization form of COVID-19.
Prior to the user finding out if they may qualify for the testing, they are supposed to create or use the google account for logging in and signing a waiver of authorization. While the registration process is going to go on, the Verify is going to be informing the users that it is going to be collecting the personal information such as the names, address, phone number, email and the health information which may be used by a lot of the government and health authorities for the public health purposes.
