A new Python library which tells the COVID-19 related information (country-wise) and it show that how many cases of confirmed, active, deaths, recovered found in that particular Country.

Requirement:
You have python package named COVID and python >= 3.6

Installation:

pip install covid

Dependencies:

  • pydantic
  • requests

Example:




from covid import Covid
  
  
covid = Covid()
india = covid.get_status_by_country_name("india")
  
data ={
    key:india[key]
    for key in india.keys() and {'confirmed'
                                 'active',
                                 'deaths',
                                 'recovered'}
}
  
print(data)

Output:

{‘confirmed’: 119419, ‘active’: 66863, ‘recovered’: 48957, ‘deaths’: 3599}

Let’s look at the modules basic functionality –

  • List Countries and their Id’s: This comes in need when you need to know the names of countries while using get_status_by_country_name, eg to use ‘America’ or ‘United States of America’ or ‘US’




    from covid import Covid
      
    covid = Covid()
    countries = covid.list_countries()
      
    print(countries)

    Output:

    [{‘id’: ’18’, ‘name’: ‘US’}, {‘id’: ’14’, ‘name’: ‘Russia’}, {‘id’: ’22’, ‘name’: ‘Brazil’}, {‘id’: ’17’, ‘name’: ‘United Kingdom’}, {‘id’: ’19’, ‘name’: ‘Spain’}, {‘id’: ’11’, ‘name’: ‘Italy’}, {‘id’: ‘7’, ‘name’: ‘France’}, {‘id’: ‘8’, ‘name’: ‘Germany’}, {‘id’: ‘176’, ‘name’: ‘Turkey’}, {‘id’: ’93’, ‘name’: ‘Iran’}, {‘id’: ’91’, ‘name’: ‘India’}, {‘id’: ‘141’, ‘name’: ‘Peru’}, {‘id’: ‘4’, ‘name’: ‘China’}, {‘id’: ‘3’, ‘name’: ‘Canada’}, {‘id’: ‘153’, ‘name’: ‘Saudi Arabia’}, {‘id’: ’20’, ‘name’: ‘Mexico’},

    Note: The list is too long, the above output is just a part of the list.

  • Get Data: To get COVID-19 related information.




    from covid import Covid
      
      
    covid = Covid()
    print(covid.get_data())

    Output:

    [{‘id’: ’18’, ‘country’: ‘US’, ‘confirmed’: 1577758, ‘active’: 1181132, ‘deaths’: 94729, ‘recovered’: 298418, ‘latitude’: 40.0, ‘longitude’: -100.0, ‘last_update’: 1590143562000}, {‘id’: ’14’, ‘country’: ‘Russia’, ‘confirmed’: 326448, ‘active’: 223374, ‘deaths’: 3249, ‘recovered’: 99825, ‘latitude’: 61.524, ‘longitude’: 105.3188, ‘last_update’: 1590143562000},

    Note: The list is too long, the above output is just a part of the list.

  • Get Status By Country ID: To get COVID-19 related information by Country Id




    from covid import Covid
      
    covid = Covid()
    cases = covid.get_status_by_country_id(18)
      
    print(cases)

    Output:

    {‘id’: ’18’, ‘country’: ‘US’, ‘confirmed’: 1541110, ‘active’: 1154535, ‘deaths’: 92712, ‘recovered’: 289392, ‘latitude’: 40.0, ‘longitude’: -100.0, ‘last_update’: 1590003166000}

  • Get Status By Country Name




    from covid import Covid
      
    covid = Covid()
    italy_cases = covid.get_status_by_country_name("italy")
      
    print(italy_cases)

    Output:

    {‘id’: ’11’, ‘country’: ‘Italy’, ‘confirmed’: 227364, ‘active’: 62752, ‘deaths’: 32330, ‘recovered’: 132282, ‘latitude’: 41.8719, ‘longitude’: 12.5674, ‘last_update’: 1590003166000}

  • Get Total Confirmed cases, Active cases, Recovered cases and Deaths




    from covid import Covid
      
      
    covid = Covid()
      
    confirmed = covid.get_total_confirmed_cases()
    print('Confirmed :', end =" ")
    print(confirmed)
      
    active = covid.get_total_active_cases()
    print("Active:", end =" ")
    print(active)
      
    recovered = covid.get_total_recovered()
    print('Recovered:', end =" ")
    print(recovered)
      
    deaths = covid.get_total_deaths()
    print('Deaths:', end =" ")
    print(deaths)

    Output:

    Confirmed : 4955312
    Active: 2750033
    Recovered: 1874998
    Deaths: 325810
