About

Methodology

This project's purpose is to provide frequently-updated COVID-19 datasets with global data in stable, easily-consumed formats.

The project reads data from multiple data sources, performs normalization and aggregations on top of it, and exposes the results as CSVs and JSON.

Here's a summary of its logic:

  1. Read data from the data sources
  2. Normalize location names (e.g., "Iran (Islamic Republic of)" => "Iran")
  3. Generate cumulative counts per country and per region by grouping by the normalized location names and summing the data
  4. Generate derived data (e.g., incremental daily counts) based on the cumulative data
  5. Write the resulting data to CSVs and JSON files

All of this logic can be viewed within the project's repo. The logic is in the src directory, and the update scheduling is in the .github/workflows directory.

Definitions

  • Region - A state, province, or similar area
  • Place - A city, town, county, or similar area

Data Sources

Data Updates

The data is updated from the data sources multiple times per day. The data update frequency is the same for both the CSVs and JSON. The update schedule can be found in cron format in update_data.yml.

API

The API provides statistics about cases, deaths, and recoveries by country, region, and place.

Usage

For example, to print the number of cases per day in China using JavaScript on a website:

fetch("https://coviddata.github.io/coviddata/v1/countries/stats.json")
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => {
    const country = data.find(country => country.country.name == "China");
    for (date in country.dates) {
      console.log(`${date} - ${country.dates[date].cumulative.cases} cases`);
    }
  })
