Projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (change country in drop-down box to obtain data for those places).
Not peer reviewed, not updated when the authors said they would, predictions in no way match observed cases. I wouldn't put too much store in this.

Re: Worrying times

If this is a ‘support thread’ I will post this link to a YouTube video

It was linked from the bbc, so I assume it is all bona fide. It may offer some useful advice to people with coVid19 symptoms.

Re: How would you classify this opening?

My last game in the 4NCL against Ravi Haria started d4 d5. c4 e6. Nc3 a6 Which seems perfectly reasonable for Black, so I guess your opening would normally be a variation on this theme, effectively a waiting move to see how White will set up and a6 will normally be of some use (forcing White to cons...

Re: Candidates Tournament 2020

Re: Candidates Tournament 2020

I’ll have a go
Winner - Ding Liren
Completed - yes
Anyone to get 14 draws - no, not even close, nobody more than ten
Alekseenko to win a game - yes, but just the one.

Total guesses all of them.

One might consider Germany's 6 deaths from more than 3,000 confirmed infections, Indeed one might, unfortunately, I think your intimation is based on a misunderstanding of statistics. Mortality rates shouldn't be based on Deaths/current cases. You need to look at the number of cases when the curren...

Re: Candidates Tournament 2020

Caruana travelled from the USA, right? Where did all the others travel from and when (and via which countries)? I suspect this event will go OK, but if someone starts coughing near-continuously on the livefeed... The effect will be psychological on some of the players . The players who is most ment...
