This is largely a patch release dealing with processing issues introduced by the recent release of tidyr 1.2.0. In addition support for data from Estonia and Vietnam has been added. See the full release notes for details. Thanks to @RichardMN, @biocyberman, @Bisaloo, @sbfnk, and @kathsherratt for contributing to this release.

New data sets
  • Support for level 1 region data in Estonia (thanks to @RichardMN). See ?Estonia for details.
  • Support for level 1 region data in Vietnam (thanks to @biocyberman). See ?Vietnam for details. Note that this class is only available if installing the vietnam branch from GitHub due to API instability issues.
Other changes
  • Change the data source for Switzerland to draw data from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)
  • Updated the package logo to include the newly supported data sets.
  • Reduced the number of package dependencies (@bisaloo and @RichardMN)
  • Added tests for JSON download code (@RichardMN).
Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug in fill_empty_dates_with_na() caused by changes made in version 1.2.0 of tidyr.
  • Fixed a bug in the data sourced from Germany so that instead of treating it as a line list of individuals it is treated as a relatively finely resolved count data which needs to be summed up (by @sbfnk).
  • Fixed a bug in the Vietnam class due to stringr (#448 by @RichardMN).
  • Fixed a bug with the Netherlands class were the lack of Hospitalisation data in the source was causing the class to fail (#446 by @RichardMN).
  • Fixed an issue with the Colombia data and reduced dependencies by making RSocrata be a suggested package (#433 by @RichardMN).
  • get_interventions_data() has been depreciated and removed.
  • get_info_covidregionaldata() has been depreciated and removed.
  • The country argument to get_national_data() has been depreciated and removed. It's functionality can be replicated using the countries argument.
  • get_linelist() has been updated to fail on use vs warn on use and will be removed from future versions of the package.
