Configuring COVID Preconfigured Source Dataset

In this article


Fast Data Loader (FDL) offers an API-based, preconfigured dataset that enables you to access comprehensive, accurate, and latest data about COVID-19 in the United States. You can load this data into a cloud data warehouse (CDW) of your choice. This data is sourced from the US Federal, vaccination data, nursing homes and long-term-care data, and NCHS deaths data. This public data API provides access to all of the Federal data at a national and state level. The data is available in both JSON and CSV formats. You can download CSV data from here.
