As the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic continues to spread that tolls the lives of everyone, the entire world is now under the observation through a set of statistics detailing the virus’ increasing cases, deaths, and recoveries. Stats is important for crunching numbers, but just by knowing the situation of the virus spread in a form of numerical data helps for most people.

For computer-users though, they may observe the statistical data through command prompt or terminal instead of looking it up in their browser. The former method, though, will take a little bit of time to set up, but having such neat little tech seemed more feasible- and cool. With a single command, you have the entire data accessible through your computer.

It requires you to first and foremost install an NPM, a package manager for the JavaScript programming, that includes node.js. Get the respective package depending on your OS platform here.

After installing the said NPM, setup wizard and all, run your command prompt to install Corono-CLI by typing the command:

npm install -g corona-cli

Similarly with installing the NPM, this also requires a bit of time, so you’ll have to wait until it indicates that it’s done. This is what it looks like when everything is installed:


Finally, type corona afterwards which showcases all countries in a table form and the command prompt’s key commands to direct you specifically to what you’re looking for.

For example, typing ‘corona philippines‘ will direct the command prompt to Philippine’s timely updated data of Covid-19 cases along with its worldwide numbers:
