Coronavirus (COVID-19) Daily Data from Worldometers with Python

Project description

🦠 COVID-19 Daily Data 🦠

Python Version PyPi Version Package Status Build Status Documentation Status

This repository allows any user to easily download COVID-19 daily data from Worldometers. Data is disaggregated per country, so you can retrieve COVID real time daily data from your own country and analyze it.


  • scraper/: contains the Jupyter Notebooks where the Web Scraper was developed and the "scripts" so as to download all the data by yourself.
  • covid_daily/: this is the Python Package directory, which contains the previously developed functions integrated into a simple Python package so that any user can easily access the data by themselves.
  • data/: contains a folder per country with all the available data as provided by Worldometers.
  • tests/: contains the tests using pytest to ensure that after each commit the package is still working properly.
  • docs/: contains the generated sphinx documentation, but you can see it at


  • Detailed data from every country available at, which is indeed every country affected by the pandemic.
  • Data is updated daily so you can track its evolution day by day.
  • A general overview on how the pandemic is affecting every country (real-time).


In order to get this package working you will need to install it via pip (with a Python3.5 version or higher) on the terminal by typing:

$ pip install covid_daily


You can find the complete developer documentation at:, hosted on Read the Docs and generated using sphinx with the theme sphinx_rtd_theme which is the standard Read the Docs theme for sphinx.


You can find a Kaggle Notebook explaining all the features on detail and providing some useful plots at: Make sure to upvote the Kaggle Notebook and follow me at Kaggle so as to stay tuned for all the updates:


Retrieve the World's overview

import covid_daily

overview = covid_daily.overview(as_json=False)


As already mentioned, this function retrieves an overview of the COVID-19 from all the available countries as indexed in

Retrieve chart's data from every country

import covid_daily

data ='spain', chart='total-currently-infected-linear', as_json=False)


Which returns a pandas.DataFrame containing all the information provided by Worldometers related to the total amoun of infected people because of the COVID-19 in Spain, in this case.

            Currently Infected
2020-05-09               63148
2020-05-10               61603
2020-05-11               63553
2020-05-12               62130
2020-05-13               60764

Note that this functions lets the user change the country and the chart type from which data will be retrieved, containing different statistics. All the available countries can be found at AVAILABLE_COUNTRIES and all the available chart types at AVAILABLE_CHARTS.

Retrieve & Plot all the available charts for any country

import covid_daily
from covid_daily.constants import AVAILABLE_CHARTS

import matplotplib.pyplot as plt

fig, axs = plt.subplots(3, 3, figsize=(20,15))

from itertools import product

pairs = list(product((range(3)), (range(3))))

for idx, available_chart in enumerate(AVAILABLE_CHARTS):
    data ='spain', chart=available_chart, as_json=False)
    data.plot(ax=axs[pairs[idx]], title=available_chart)


The resulting figure containing all the data (charts) from Spain, as previously retrieved, is shown below, generated after the previous code block.


As this is an open source project it is open to contributions, bug reports, bug fixes, documentation improvements, enhancements and ideas. There is an open tab of issues where anyone can open new issues if needed or navigate through them in order to solve them or contribute to its solving. Remember that issues are not threads to describe multiple problems, this does not mean that issues can't be discussed, but so to keep a structured project management, the same issue should not describe different problems, just the main one and some nested/related errors that may be found.
