The Health API enables statistics associated with the COVID-19 virus. The API returns aggregated statistics (with total confirmed cases, deaths, and recovered), and country statistics. Data is sourced from Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE).
Over the past month, as COVID-19 has proliferated, ProgrammableWeb has been tracking APIs that provide access to data related to the pandemic. The World Health Organization now reports that the virus has infected more than 462,000 people across more than 199 countries.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Coronavirus, Financial, and Games. Highlights include 5 more APIs for COVID-19 data, an API for The New York Times crossword puzzle data, and an API for auto sales data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
