IEEE realizes that many are directly or indirectly engaged in the fight against COVID-19 and its effects on global health and safety, research, infrastructure, communications, and more. IEEE has identified articles and standards from the IEEE Xplore digital library that may help researchers understand and manage different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic and technologies that can be leveraged to combat it.

IEEE has made these standards available at no cost to help speed developmental response to the current global health crisis. These standards are now free to access, with additional rights for all types of reuse, including full text and data mining, and analysis.
