    So given the rapidly rising percentage of those already infected once, multiplied by a factor to account for untested infected cases, and the fast pace of vaccination expected, all bode well for a big OTB chess tournament in the USA in mid 2021...
    Aren't you making the assumption that people who have had Covid but have "recovered" are now immune? I am not sure I have seen that documented anywhere. It seems like a common assumption but I am not sure there is a lot of research on that. (please feel free to point to such information).

    In the U.S. especially I fear that the uptake of the vaccine in the general population will be unacceptably low for the same reason Trump still managed to get 70 million votes.

      If the first encounter did not produce immunity, we would have had about 600,000 cases of a second infection in USA. How many have been reported from that country? Less than 6? Or is it just 1?

          But I do think those clear acrylic panels are almost a complete waste. Air circulation goes in all directions...

          “These barriers are designed to prevent large spray-born droplets, which are released when someone talks loudly or coughs at close range,” she told me. “But you also have to account for the smaller particles that can go around the plexiglass barrier and stay airborne for longer periods of time, which someone can still inhale.”

          ...that's why people should wear a mask! Keep as much of those 'large spray-born droplets' inside the mask as possible.

          Okay people!! Very funny. Who figured out Neil's password?

              I just got the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Sunday. We're having some difficulty with getting the vaccines into people, due mainly to inefficient health care bureaucracy as far as I can tell, so most of the ER physicians/nurses/hospital health care workers have not received anything yet...I was fortunate to be finishing a shift in the ER when a nearby nursing home called, saying they had a few doses left from the day's vaccinations, so I walked over with some of the nurses and got the shot. Went well, no side effects, just a slightly sore arm from the injection

                      A different approach to immunization? A nasal spray that provides protection for several hours...
