Track some basic covid19 statistics

Project description

covid19_counter

Simple tool to display information about COVID19 and store and tweet out the details.

Runs on a loop checking the number of Confirmed, Recovered and Deaths and also the percentage died.

All data is pulled from: https://github.com/CSSEGISandData/COVID-19

User can specify the interval to check, the type of display (for small displays), and display the record of any changes. In addition there's a test option which allows you to enter your own data files, or make modifications.

Data on Deaths, Confirmed cases, Recoveries and Percentage Died are calculated by pulling the CSV files down, and creating pandas df's, summing the data up ofthe last known column, which is also the latest.

Option to Tweet the results - obviously requires a Twitter developer license and creds populated in an auth.py file.

This is currently active: https://twitter.com/alert_covid19

In a seperate terminal the user can see a running history of changes:

Output looks like

    covid19_counter -r

                            interval in seconds between retrieving the data again,
