If you're looking to consume this in your Ruby-based application, you might want to check Sarskov out. Sarskov returns statistics in a JSON format.
Kovid is a small CLI app to fetch data surrounding the coronavirus pandemic of 2019. I found myself checking Wikipedia constantly for information so I thought I'd build this to provide info directly in the terminal. It's where some of us spend time more.
