Japanese Government Gives 2,000 iPhones To Coronavirus Patients For Free

The Japanese government has recently distributed a total of 2,000 new iPhones for free to hundreds of passengers stuck on a cruise ship due to coronavirus outbreak.

The health minister of Japan has already released a statement that 355 people on board the ship have tested positive for coronavirus.

As reported by 9to5mac last Friday, the iPhones were handed to each cabin so passengers can access an app made by the government.

The app allows passengers to consult with a doctor.

Earlier this month, the same ship has arrived near the Japanese coast with more than 3,700 passengers on board. It was placed under quarantine after a passenger who left the vessel in Hong Kong tested positive for coronavirus.

The local government is expected to test the traveler for the virus from February 18 and release passengers with negative results starting February 21.
