Amazon launches virtual healthcare clinic in U.S.


The Amazon logo is seen outside its JFK8 distribution center in Staten Island, New York, U.S. November 25, 2020. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid Inc (AMZN.O) launched Amazon clinic on Tuesday, a virtual platform for common healthcare conditions like allergies, acne and asthma, expanding the e-commerce giant’s presence in the U.S. healthcare space.

Amazon, which already runs Amazon Pharmacy, said the new service would operate in 32 states, and comes only months after it agreed to buy primary care provider One Medical (ONEM.O) for $3.49 billion.
