Any Bing search results pages that are related to “corona” and “coronavirus” will now feature the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) ts pages now feature the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Coronavirus self-checker as a persistent, expandable chatbot.

You can interact with the self-checker right from the search results pages to access your symptoms and receive guidance.

The CDC’s Coronavirus self-checker on Bing.com.

The self-checker asks users for consent and location, demographic and symptom information. Based on the information, it produces a recommendation such as “Stay at home and monitor your symptoms. Call your provider if you get worse,” or “Call 911 – You may be having a medical emergency.”

Google’s results page for “corona” does not feature the chatbot, but does show a link to the self-checker within the “Help and information” box.
