Alexa can help figure out your Coronavirus risk level

Just say "Alexa, what should I do if I think I have Coronavirus?"

Millions of people are asking themselves this question, and thankfully Alexa's newest feature can help determine your risk level.

Asking this question will prompt Alexa to walk you through a series of questions about your symptoms, travel history, age, and possible exposure to the virus. Based on your responses, Alexa will tell you the appropriate CDC guidance.

If your responses imply that you could be at high risk, Alexa may suggest contacting a doctor or urge self-isolation. If your risk is low, she might say that you're probably OK for now.

NEW: Alexa can now sing for 20 seconds to time hand-washing 

To ensure proper hand washing during the pandemic, just say "Alexa, sing for 20 seconds" and follow the CDC's 5 steps for washing your hands:

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap and apply soap
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds (This is where the Alexa timer comes in!)
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them
