Vaccine (inoculation) against COVID-19
A yearly vaccine required for all soldiers to protect you from a virus that spreads from the nose or throat of the infected persons to others. The "influenza season" in the U.S. is from November through April each year. The viruses that cause influenza change often. For this reason, the influenza vaccine is updated each year. Protection develops about 2 weeks after the shot and may last up to a year.

Potential side effects: Soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given, fever, and aches. If these problems occur, they usually last for 1-2 days.

NOTE: The viruses in the vaccine are killed. You CANNOT get influenza from the vaccine.

CNT is finally heading back home soon. Guys and gals have been away from home for more than three months since German Open. Just look at That poor guy with long hair and beard, can you believe he’s FZD?

Thank God for them, seriously family time is what these guys need, glad common sense prevailed. Sure they had a plan to stay healthy and fit and virus free but this was crazy.

Not sure what plan they have install for them, if will set up facilities in China along with other juniors but going home is a positive.

The Olympics is likely to be cancelled anyways, makes no sense to stay any longer. I guess the old guards will retire after National Championships next year.

yes its becoming more likely that Olympics will not happen in 2021 as well

Yep, doubt will happen.
Too much honestly against the games happening. Soo many global events look like heading towards same fate.

Think normality won't return to probably 2022 when vaccines is in full circulation and hopefully good measures in place, right now is a mess. FIFA World Cup might not go ahead, who knows. These events need the atmosphere, empty stadiums won't work.

frankly nobody knows.

The most talkative French "expert" doctor Raoult says he believes Covid-19 will go away in summer just like most other viruses. when it comes back we will have the treatments...

Experts keep being wrong, and this guy has a good history of being wrong about Covid-19 but common people like him

No videos to show (from me at least) but the CNT held an internal competition recently. Results from the men's team were predictable but not so much for the women, although the rules also differed for both.

Men's Team

1. Fan Zhendong
2. Ma Long
3. Xu Xin
4. Lin Gaoyuan
5. Xu Chenhao
6. Liang Jingkun
7. Zhou Qihao
8. Zhou Yu
9. Wang Chuqin
10. Zhao Zihao
11. Yan An
12. Xiang Peng
13. Xu Haidong
14. Fang Bo

Women's Team

1. Wang Yidi
2. Zhang Rui
3. Sun Yingsha
4. Ding Ning
5. Chen Xingtong
6. Gu Yuting
7. Wang Manyu
8. Chen Meng
9. Liu Fei
10. Sun Mingyang
11. He Zhuojia
12. Qian Tianyi

*Liu Shiwen and Zhu Yuling didn't take part, for reasons unknown. Presumably because the former is still on the verge of recovery and has her own physio routine. The latter is also said to be feeling unwell.

Chinese DHS H3 national rubber is known to abuse the INTERNATIONAL rules of table tennis, and all the Japanese rubbers do obey with the rules to the full.
ITTF going to re-test the China rubbers as used by China national team. Bad time to come for the Chinese athletes, very bad.

Men
4 groups followed by elimination
FZD, XX, ML, and LGY seeded according to WR, and the remaining 10 players were then drawn.
Best of 3

Women
Best of 3
For DN, CM, SYS, and WMY, when up against non-core players, a 1-point handicap in 2 games, and a 2-point handicap in the final game, another point to be decided by the non-core players must be spotted in either the 1st or 2nd game.
Matchups b/w core players(core vs core) and non-core players(non-core vs non-core) start from 0:0.

So Sun Yingsha and Ding Ning know how to deal with pressure and Chen Meng and Wang Manyu don't? ;)

Wells, one common critique levelled towards CM is that she tends to warm up to matches slower than the others, which she thinks so herself too. Besides, best of 3 matches allegedly favour those whose playing styles are more speed-oriented as they tend to get into the rhythm faster, which is seemingly true for the women if you look at those who placed first, second and third.

Also, rumours has it that DN took down CM and SYS continues her winning record against WMY.

Zhang Rui winning the second place was not mentioned at all in the CCTV report. ZR is one of the three in CNT who intend to play like Mima. It must be embarrassing for CNT that ZR beat most of top players after all these intensive trainings at Macau. Wonder if WCQ was so unlucky that he played in FZDs group with LJK
