Live global stats (provided by fight-covid19/bagdes) from this API:

Covid-19 Confirmed Covid-19 Recovered Covid-19 Deaths

Recovered cases showing 0

JHU (our main data provider) no longer provides data for amount of recoveries, and as a result, the API will be showing 0 for this statistic. Apolegies for any inconvenience. Hopefully we'll be able to find an alternative data-source that offers this.

Available data-sources:

Currently 2 different data-sources are available to retrieve the data:

jhu data-source will be used as a default source if you don't specify a source parameter in your request.

API Reference

All endpoints are located at coronavirus-tracker-api.herokuapp.com/v2/ and are accessible via https. For instance: you can get data per location by using this URL: https://coronavirus-tracker-api.herokuapp.com/v2/locations

You can open the URL in your browser to further inspect the response. Or you can make this curl call in your terminal to see the prettified response:

curl https://coronavirus-tracker-api.herokuapp.com/v2/locations | json_pp
