Basic Usage

Global Tracking

To track COVID-19 cases on CLI globally, all you need to do is to use CURL or WGET command.


curl -L


wget -i && cat index.html


# visit

Country Tracking

To track COVID-19 cases on CLI by country, all you need to do is to append the URL with the country name or country ISO 3166-1 code.

Country Name

# example usage
curl -L

Country ISO 3166-1 Code

# /ph or /phl is ISO 3166 code of the Philippines
curl -L

Country with History Chart

# shows result with history chart
curl -L
# shows by default a history chart
curl -L
# shows result with history chart
curl -L

Advance Usage

Check Update Automagically

# check update every 10 seconds (where -n 10 is the interval)
watch -n 10 "curl -L"

# for more advance setup (where -s is to suppress curl's progress bar)
watch -c -n 600 "curl -s -L<country>"

Create a Shortcut Command

# set a desired alias for the command (replace endcov with your desired alias)
# this will give you a global update
# alias <your alias>="curl"

alias endcov="curl"

# if you want to track a specific country
# alias <your alias>< coutry alias>="curl< name, ISO2, ISO3 here>"

alias endcovPH="curl"

Local Command Line Tracker

# clone the repo
git clone
# copy paste the command
cd covid19-tracker-cli && npm install && npm link
# run the local command line tracker. ex. covid <country/iso 3166 code>
covid ph

# if you want to see the result in plain view without ansi encoding
covid ph --plain

# run help for more info
covid help
