Coronavirus Outbreak Triggers First-Ever Health Emergency Alert on Smartphones

The coronavirus outbreak caused what likely was a first-ever health alert over smartphones this (Tuesday) morning, at 10:20.


The Emergency Alert was sent by the state, saying it needs licensed healthcare workers to sign-up at the web site "illinoishelps-dot-net" to fight the COVID-19 outbreak.


It's likely the first time that the state has used the Emergency Alert System to recruit health care professionals.
