NPM Package

Version Size Downloads

We suggest you load the module via require, considering ES modules in Node.js are not yet stable.

Executing a method will return a Promise. The examples here utilise async/await to access the data.

JavaScript:

const { NovelCovid } = require('novelcovid');

TypeScript:

import { NovelCovid } from 'novelcovid';

Methods

Everything is listed on the npm site.

Note

Since data.updated returns milliseconds, you can do new Date(data.updated) as it returns an ISO Date

You can read more about new Date() here
