How effective is the App against COVID-19?

  • Insufficient information is available to assess the effectiveness or correctness of the provided recommendations. The statement that “we have incorporated input from our community of tens of thousands of physicians along with clinical guidelines from the following institutions …” does not mean the site’s recommendations must be correct.

What are the downsides, or risks of using this App?

  • The information provided on what happens to the data entered by App Users is insufficient. The App may be entirely benign, or it may not; we cannot tell.

  • The self-asserted privacy policy also leaves questions open.

Recommendations to App Users

  • There are many similar websites for COVID-19 self-assessment. Given the open questions, the website of your healthcare provider or public health authority may be a better choice.
