2,000 iPhones distributed to cruise ship passengers quarantined over coronavirus

A Princess cruise liner saw a validated case of coronavirus onboard at the beginning of this month. The ship was quarantined off the coast of Japan while authorities determined what to do with the so-called”coronavirus cruise liner.”Apparently, offering the travelers iPhones is one of the important things authorities developed. Around 2,000 iPhones were given out to the ship’s passengers.Why iPhones? The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare has an application that allows patients to communicate with physicians.Authorities concluded that offering each guest an iPhone with this app pre-loaded would be the best way for them to get medical advice.According to iMore, the initial idea was actually to distribute Android phones, as they would likely be much cheaper. There were issues that the app in concern wouldn’t work appropriately on Android gadgets, so iPhones were used instead.This photograph, presumably taken on the coronavirus cruise ship, recommends that travelers were handed iPhone 6S gadgets:Coronavirus Cruise Ship iPhones< img class=
