This plugin makes it easy for South African WordPress sites to add the Covid-19 banner as required by the South African government. This is to make sure that a legitimate source of information is known.
There is a widget that can be used in sidebars and a shortcode that can be used pretty much anywhere else.

Thus far, the plugin has worked for most use cases. I would however recommend the following:
Allowing links (website, hotline, WhatsApp) to open in a new/blank tab. Whilst most responsible businesses have no problem displaying the banner and directing traffic to the website and contact numbers; they also don't want to lose their active visitors.
Either allowing for custom color options for links in the banner or forcing the COVID-19 site color scheme ("!important"). I have found a few situations where the theme styling affected the links (white links on white background) and needed to add custom CSS.
Other than the above, I believe that this plugin provides one of the easiest ways to to fulfill legal requirements and share factual information regarding COVID-19 in South Africa.
If you run a South African based site and simply wish to add a banner that adds a link to valued information on the matter → this does so perfectly.
@seagyn definitely builds quality and keen to see his other plugins after experiencing this one.
Simple, easy and does what you expect. Nice.
