Web fights covid19 Community Group

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 covid19 (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

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

Call for Participation in Web fights covid19 Community Group

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 covid19
(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


In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2020-04-09 by Pablo COCA. The following people supported its creation: Pablo COCA, Xiaoqian Wu, Ruoxi Ran, Xueyuan Jia, Fuqiao Xue. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at site-comments@w3.org

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
