Made An open source COVID-19 Data Tracker API

For those Data freaks ... or i must say tinker boomers, made a simple rest API to fetch data about Covid-19 by country. You can do whatever with it, but don't be a naughty boy with the requests, yo IP may get blacklisted and i don't really care. 

I made this to use it myself while learning some stuff that needed a bunch of data. This is probably gonna be probably an on-going experiment / project so take it as it is.

Don't expect number/data changes,but JSON structure and data availability changes may happen.

Update Jan 10th, 2021: I made a page to document changes, i won't be updating here anymore. ALSO SOME MORE DETAILS IN THERE, Like sources and such!

        "people_fully_vaccinated_per_hundred": 24.66
    "last_update": "2021-04-19T02:57:50.000000Z"

Also, yes.. there is some more data (and an ugly VUE frontend at .

i'll probably add some more endpoints. I just don't need em at the moment, so that's why.


  • Data gets updated about 2 times per day, when? depends on country and source.
  • Consume this Rest API using some sort of backend technology.
  • Sending too many requests may result on IP blacklist.
  • For now, CORS disabled to avoid hotlink (running on a potato instance).
  • In theory calling this endpoint once per hour should be more than enough to keep you updated with the most recent data.

Have fun with it, and be safe out-there <3

    One of the features present in the last few versions of Laravel is Blade components. For some reason (at least on the projects i had to to work) the adoption isn't great. They come to fill a void within the MVC pattern and organize our projects nicely.
