The goal of the package is to provide a function to automatically import the Brazilian COVID-19 pandemic data into R. Brazilian data is available on country, region, state, and city levels, and are downloaded from the official Brazilian repository at <https://covid.saude.gov.br/>. The package also enables one to download the world-level COVID-19 data from the Johns Hopkins University’s repository at <https://github.com/CSSEGISandData/COVID-19>.
