COVID-19 began in 2019, and by the advent of 2020, it had become widespread and adversely affected the world. In this work—Covid Live, COVID-19 data is scraped from an online website, which gives an overview of the status of the pandemic in the desired format. The authors built an application interface using a Python micro web Flask framework. The data scraping uses a multi-threading concept to reduce the program's runtime error, resulting in receiving the data quickly, and faster than existing web crawlers and scrapers. This paper focuses on dealing with storing scraped data in the desired format. It also provides options to hear the audio of the scraped data and to download the scraped data. The authors present visualizations of current trends with scraping period details and demonstrate an efficient application that does the data scraping quickly and efficiently.
