Apple is offering Apple News readers in the United States dedicated coverage of the global COVID-19 viral outbreak by collecting stories and health guidelines in a specially curated section of the app.
The Special Coverage Coronavirus section appears in Apple News Spotlight, and includes the latest reports from news partners including CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times, amongst others.
The public health coverage includes tips and advice on viral symptoms and how to stay safe, including regular and thorough hand washing, catching coughs with disposable tissues, and avoiding close contact with people who are unwell.
In addition, readers can find links to recommended sources of information, such as the State Department and Johns Hopkins University.
The special coverage is similar to previous dedicated sections hosted on Apple News, such as the 2020 U.S. presidential elections.
The coronavirus section is available to readers in the U.S. only, and can be accessed from the Today tab within the News app on iPhone, iPad and Mac.

I am suspicious about the motivation behind peoples comments downplaying this pandemic. A few weeks ago we barely heard of this thing - now there are thousands dead.
Comments like yours are proudly ignorant, and people like you will infect their whole family without even knowing it.
Dont be silly. You can do more. Stay home. Lose your job. Avoid people. Stock up on toilet paper. Live in fear. And join the nutjob revolution.
People REALLY need to understand you can be infected and pass it along before you have any idea you are sick. Now picture large events with thousands of people and potentially dozens of unknowingly infected people passing it along to people around them. Attend one large event and infect your entire family before the person who infected you feels sick.
There are ignorant people repeating nonsense and passing it off as fact because they want to believe whatever nonsense they are spewing. That's the real reason why it will spread - misinformation. This is a catastrophe that is just getting started. Prepare for life to be real different for a while. Misinformation is killing people and nobody really cares.
This is how it will happen in the US as well. There are so many people who think it's the big bad media lying to them so they don't trust anything except the nonsense they already believe. We are so screwed.
German government says 60 percent of their population or more will get the virus. Worldwide statistics tell us 10 percent of those over 80 who get the virus will die.
yeah, maybe people should stay home for a couple of weeks and you should stop trying to get everyone killed with false bravado.
