PHP Corona Virus Database

An API to lookup information about Corona Virus

This package provides an API to lookup information about Corona Virus.

It can provides API entries to perform queries on a database with figures about the current status of the Corona Virus epidemic around the world. Currently it can:

  • Return the number of reported cases
  • Return the number of reported deaths
  • Return the number of recovered people
  • Filter the results by country
  • Return results aggregating all countries

Corona Virus Database

A repository for analyzing references and database of website for Corona Virus.

Corona Virus


Downloadable database: GitHub: Here.

There is a csv files for every day. e.g:

But main site has not get data from that.

By checking main website, I did check all requests and links:

Finaly I found this:*&orderByFields=Confirmed%20desc&resultOffset=0&resultRecordCount=1000&cacheHint=true

But you can see all requests as HAR format at here.


  • Free, Open Source, Easy and short code
  • Ability to create token for suers
  • Ability to search in country
  • Ability to sort (ASC or DESC) in country list
  • Ability to get total number (in world)
  • Ability to limit auth and token


This project is a web service that allows you to create different accesses.

And later use this web service in different applications and sites. e.g: You may even sell a subscription to this web service.

All request of this web-service will need a token for Auth and access to methods.

There is a table for tokens, called token. So you can create one token or more.

In file, I explain how can use from web service.

So others can using this key to access to this web-service.

You will need to execute $ php _update.php update in src/ directory to insert and updates data into your database, then you can use from API methods. (You should pass token value in Headers)

Remember it's a API service, if are you looking for a script to display directly list of corona cases, you can check below repositories:


Create a token in database:


Development Mode

In additation of my message: If you want to use this API webservice, And want to easily see response of methods.

You can use a plugins in your browser. such as:

You had to add Token header with a value.



All request need token value in header, You can create token in token table.

Installing / Using from COVID19 API

  • Download source files
  • Upload sources files in a webserver (e.g: `/var/www/html` or `/usr/share/nginx/html` or ...)
  • Create a database for this project
  • Put username, password and database name in `_core.php` file and config this project by modify `_core.php` file
  • Import `corona.sql` file into your database (using phpmyadmin or mariadb, mysql cli or other tools)

> Note: corona.sql is database structure with empty table, you will use it to setup this project. But output.sql is a database output with current corona data.

How keep data live and up to date?

Run $ php _update.php update every time you want to update your database rows. It will automaticly update and change data, if they are new or changed!

Using crontab to automaticly update results
