2020-04-12Automating the COVID19 PDF scraping
In my last post I wrote about the process for scraping data from Google’s COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports. That post dealt with processing just one report, the one for the UK, but Google have published reports for around 130 countries and one for each of the 50 US states. So we could run the script 180 separate times to extract all the data, but we can easily extend our scripting to automate this process.
