StopCorona API: Unofficial API of StopCoronaTN Resources

May 08, 2021

StopCorona API is an unofficial, open, public API for the info on https://stopcorona.tn.gov.in/.

The motivation behind this API is to provide a free, accessible, available API of COVID-19 facilities to enable others to build useful things that might help people. Right now, this is just a couple of hours of hacking together something basic, but I think it has the scope to do / be much more.

While this API is open to the public and free to use, I’m running it out of pocket, on a measly budget. Please use it for something meaningful, and please be mindful of how many automated queries you send my way. 🙏

I’ll keep updating this page as I add more resources, but for now, you can see a list of private hospital beds and their availabilities.

Authentication

The API is currently open, and no authentication or signup is required. Just hit the endpoints and get the data you seek.
