Default Keeping track of the pandemic from your OpenBSD command line

ftp -VM -o - -U curl/7. https://corona-stats.online/DE
No packages required.

Works just like the weather info from wttr.in, which we discussed here before and which expects a curl UA, so you have to fake that with the -U option for proper formatting. Change the last two letters to match your country code. More info and options here. Sample default output (requires non-standard terminal window size):

Stay safe.

Interesting! Thank you. I do find myself tracking this virulent plague rather obsessively. I'm in my early 60s; I have some lung issues as I was a smoker in my teens up to 25.
I'm hopeful that we will have a vaccine next year at some point.

Word is a vaccine would only be 70 percent or less effective...
As to the command above, FreeBSD's ftp doesn't accept that command line parameters.
