If you are in the medical field, big business, run a non-profit, or are working for a government entity that’s responsible for setting policy for working conditions, obtaining up-to-date info about COVID-19 can be crucial in determining the easiest path forward.
This API, designed to gather the number of confirmed cases, recovered cases, and/or deaths from COVID-19 from the data provided by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE) could assist you in that task. The COVID-19 JHU CSSE connector, with its nine actions can get that information for your flow. How you then use it is up to you.

Under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, openFDA is an API containing public Food and Drug Administration data about drugs, devices, and foods. The openFDA Drug connector for Power Automate focuses on the drugs portion of that database. If the info you are looking for are any or all of these:
- information submitted to the FDA about adverse events
- national drug code (NDC) or
- FDA-approved drug products
then this connector’s actions may glean the info you require.
Fun Fact: The FDA-approved drug products list includes “most of the drug products approved since 1939. The majority of patient information, labels, approval letters, reviews, and other information are available for drug products approved since 1998.” ~Source: Microsoft documentation openFDA Drug connector
