A scraper that pulls COVID-19 Coronavirus data scraped from government and curated data sources.

This project exists to scrape, de-duplicate, and cross-check county-level data on the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Every piece of data produced includes the URL where the data was sourced from as well as a rating of the source’s technical quality (completeness, machine readability, best practices – not accuracy).

Where’s the data?

How often is it updated?

We upload fresh data every day at around 9PM PST.
