COVID19Py

Downloads Downloads Downloads GPLv3 License All Contributors CodeFactor HitCount GitHub stars

A tiny Python package for easy access to up-to-date Coronavirus (COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2) cases data.

About

COVID19Py is a Python wrapper made to be compatible with ExpDev07/coronavirus-tracker-api REST API. It retrieves data directly from an instance of @ExpDev07's backend but it can also be set up to use a different backend.

To achieve this, just pass the URL of the backend as a parameter to the library's constructor:

import COVID19Py
covid19 = COVID19Py.COVID19("https://my-awesome-covid19-backend")

Installation

In order install this package, simply run:

pip install COVID19Py

Usage

To use COVID19Py, you first need to import the package and then create a new instance:

import COVID19Py
covid19 = COVID19Py.COVID19()

Choosing a data source

COVID19Py supports the retrieval of data from multiple data sources. To choose a specific data source, simply pass it as a parameter to the library's constructor:

covid19 = COVID19Py.COVID19(data_source="csbs")

For more details about the available data sources, please check the API's documentation.

Getting latest amount of total confirmed cases, deaths, and recoveries:

latest = covid19.getLatest()

Getting all locations:

locations = covid19.getLocations()

or:

locations = covid19.getLocations(timelines=True)

to also get timelines.

You can also rank the results by confirmed, deaths or recovered.

locations = covid19.getLocations(rank_by='recovered')

Getting location by country code:

location = covid19.getLocationByCountryCode("US")

or:

location = covid19.getLocationByCountryCode("US", timelines=True)

to also get timelines.

Getting a specific location (includes timelines by default):

location = covid19.getLocationById(39)

Getting location by country name:

location = covid19.getLocationByCountry("Zimbabwe")

or:

location = covid19.getLocationByCountry("Zimbabwe", timelines=True)

Getting all data at once:

You can also get all the available data with one command.

data = covid19.getAll()

or:

data = covid19.getAll(timelines=True)

to also get timelines.

latest will be available on data["latest"] and locations will be available on data["locations"].

Getting latest deltas:

When using getAll(), COVID19Py will also store the previous version of the retrieved data. This allows us to easily see how data changed since the last time we requested them.

changes = covid19.getLatestChanges()
{
    "confirmed": 512,
    "deaths": 16,
    "recovered": 1024
}
