In this tutorial, I will show you, how to create a GUI with Python and Tkinter to display COVID19 information by using a free API.

👉 This is the COVID19 API:

Python Code

import requests
import json
from tkinter import *

window = Tk()

# Window Config
window.title('COVID19 Info')

def get_country_info():
    url = ''​
    response = requests.request("GET",url)

    #Get​ Data from API and store in json
    data = json.loads(response.text)

    # Get Index for Country
    searchcountry = txt.get()

    def get_country_index(country):
        for index,item in enumerate(data['Countries']):
            if item['Country'] == country:
                return index

    countryid = get_country_index(searchcountry)

    #Get​ New New Confirmed & Total Confirmed
    newconfirmed = data['Countries'][countryid]['NewConfirmed']
    totalconfirmed = data['Countries'][countryid]['TotalConfirmed']

    covid_msg = f'Last number of new confirmed cases in {searchcountry}: {newconfirmed}.\nThe total cases are: {totalconfirmed}'

    # Return covid msg to gui

# Create Label
lbl = Label(window, text='Enter Country:')
lbl.grid(column=0, row=0, sticky=E)

# Create Entry Field
txt = Entry(window, width=30)
txt.grid(column=1, row=0, sticky=W)

# Create Button
btn = Button(window, text='Get Information', command=get_country_info)
btn.grid(column=2,row=0, sticky=W)

# Display Output
output_text = StringVar()
lbl_output = Label(window, textvariable=output_text)
lbl_output.grid(column=0,columnspan=2, row=1, sticky=W)
