Daily API RoundUp: COVID-19, ZivaCare, BDApps, Suggestic, Symbl

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Artificial Intelligence, Health and Real Estate. Featured today are APIs are several APIs for tracking COVID-19 and an API for nutrition analysis. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Several more APIs have been added to ProgrammableWeb's expansive Coronavirus category. They are listed below.

Canadian COVID-19 REST APITrack this API returns updated infections, casualties, recovered patients and hospitalizations associated with the COVID-19 in Canada. The dataset is maintained by the COVID-19 Tracker Canada team.

Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 APITrack this API provides COVID-19 related statistics sourced from the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE) GitHub repository. The API returns confirmed, death and recovered cases all around the world.

Chile Corona APITrack this API returns Coronavirus infections in Chile. Data is sourced from the Government of Chile and the Ministry of Health. Response times are usually less than 500 milliseconds. The API returns national totals, and the respective cases by regions, and communes.

COVID-19 India Cases APITrack this API provides updated COVID-19 cases for India (statewise). The API returns recovered patient count, casualties, and total infections. Also, the API offers timeline data.

CoronaTracker functions as a Portal to keep track of latest news development about the COVID-19. The APITrack this API returns Coronavirus analytics by country, healthcare institution information, travel alerts, news, and statistics.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak APITrack this API returns confirmed cases, casualties, and recovered patient count. The API supports country and state information. Data is sourced from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), Wikipedia, and the NovelCOVID API.

CDC Testing (ScrAPI) APITrack this API pulls the number of specimens tested for SARS CoV-2 by CDC labs on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

CDC Cases & Deaths (ScrAPI) API pulls COVID-19 cases and deaths from the CDC home page. The API scrapes the latest counts for total cases and casualties, saves the result to an environment, and displays using the visualizer. Data is converted into JSON.

Huawei Contact Shield is a service that utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy to record nearby people with whom a user has contact with. Developers can implement this technology in Android devices to potentially reduce the spread of COVID-19. If a user is tested positive for COVID-19, the third-party application asks for the user's authorization, obtains the user's shared key, and uploads the key to the diagnosis server. The Huawei Contact Shield APITrack this API returns the risk of getting infected by determining the distance between diagnosed and undiagnosed individuals. This API is an alternative to the Exposure Notification API from Apple and Google.

Finnhub COVID-19 REST APITrack this API returns the current number of Coronavirus cases in the US with a state-by-state breakdown.
