Web fights covid19 Community Group created

The Web fights covid19 Community Group has been launched:


There is no doubt that the Web is demonstrating its potential in these
hard times of the covid19 pandemic. 

The Web is allowing us to share information quickly and globally. Also,
It is enabling the quick deployment of remote-working solutions as a
response to the lockdown measures imposed by a majority of Governments.
But the Web goes far beyond. Lots of Web ressources have been launched
in the last weeks from different parts of the World supporting tools to
fight the covid19: websites implementing AI screening and detection
solutions; with data visualization tools; accessing bots and humans for
telemedicine services; sharing information about medical resources...
all these are some of the examples, and the list grows every day.
This Community Group is proposed for achieving the following objectives:
(1) to create a repository of already existing Web resources related to
(2) to identify other Web-based initiatives which are on-going
(3) to share Web-based initiatives of CG Members in order to get
on-board other Members and achieve the maximum impact
