Надеялся на плагин с данными по Covid и погоде, а на самом деле показывает только данные по Covid. На мобильном телефоне не жрёт мобильный трафик, показывает актуальные данные, есть выбор цвета и размера картинки. Разработчики если возможно добавьте погоду и выбор нескольких Городов и Областей с графиками.
