Established at the end of March, the CERN against COVID-19 Task Force was charged with coordinating the efforts of the CERN community in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus. Since then, the work of the group has been organised largely into three strands: Medical devices, IT initiatives and Support to society.

Following a welcome by the Director General and an introduction from Task Force Chair, Beniamino Di Girolamo, Task Force members gave a comprehensive overview of the impressive amount of work that has been carried out in the fight against COVID-19 by some 150 members of the CERN community.
