About this Collection:
As the Coronavirus pandemic, also known as COVID-19, continues to spread, staying up-to-date on the most recent information is essential. Keeping up with relevant information, such as new cases, deaths and local infection rates, can help you stay safe and healthy. Additionally, many of these APIs are free and come from published data from hospitals around the United States.
About the Coronavirus Pandemic
COVID-19 began spreading throughout the United States in early March of 2020. Since then, over 200,000 Americans have died from the virus. At the moment, researchers still do not entirely understand the virus or how it impacts the body. They have gathered information on how the virus spreads, what populations it affects and the side effects and potential long-term complications individuals experience due to the virus.
Most commonly, individuals report respiratory distress as the onset of the virus. This distress often accompanies a fever, fatigue, and other flu-like symptoms. It requires a diagnosis from a local testing facility. Individuals infected with the virus or who have come in contact with someone infected with the virus must quarantine for two weeks to help stop the spread.
What does a COVID-19 API include?
In this collection of COVID-19 APIs, you’ll find all the information you need to know to track the spread of the virus. Much of this information comes directly from top medical institutions, such as the COVID-19 API website, which directly reports John Hopkins CSSE data. Alternatively, individuals may access the Coronavirus APIs website, which sources its data from individual state reports. Information pulled from these APIs return in JSON format for simple data integration. These APIs are free to use - keep in mind that they have subscription options that allow users access to more detailed data, which may be necessary for some users.
The available data will vary based upon the type of API the individual or organization utilizes and if the individual purchases premium API subscriptions. Extended data may provide insight into viral trends, including tracing potential super-spreader events that cause local spikes in the virus. Additionally, users can sort data by state and city to look at regional or population-specific virus data.
Who can use the data from COVID-19 APIs?
This data can benefit a wide audience. Researchers utilize the data to track virus outbreaks. Hospitals and first responders may also use the data to prepare and request additional resources and supplies to treat affected areas. Top medical professionals have used data to examine which populations suffer from COVID-19 the most and identify infection trends.
What organizations provide COVID-19 API data?
Several organizations have taken on the challenge of compiling and tracking the pandemic through APIs. The World Health Organization offers an API database that tracks the spread of the virus across the globe. John Hopkins also provides this data, which COVID tracking websites have utilized for their APIs. Lastly, many state-level health departments offer this data, which is sourced by API developers to create regional tracking and monitoring abilities.
