In this article we will see how to make a script to get the details of corona virus cases i.e total cases, recovered cases and total deaths only by typing the name of the country.
Modules required and Installation:
Requests : Requests allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests extremely easily. There’s no need to manually add query strings to your URLs.
pip install requests
Beautiful Soup: Beautiful Soup is a library that makes it easy to scrape information from web pages. It sits atop an HTML or XML parser, providing Pythonic idioms for iterating, searching, and modifying the parse tree.
pip install beautifulsoup4
In order to make this script we have to do the following :
1. From the name of the country create URL
2. Scrape the data with the help of requests and Beautiful Soup
3. Convert that data into html code.
4. Find the required details and filter them.
5. Save the result in the dictionary.
Below is the implementation –
Cases in United States Total Cases : 654,343 Recovered Cases : 56,618 Total Deaths : 33,490 ---------------------------- Cases in India Total Cases : 12,759 Recovered Cases : 1,514 Total Deaths : 423
