    it comes down to whether places will get a 2nd wave, a recurrence.
    to which i agree wholeheartedly, and on an individual level it is quite easy for those of us with common sense to adapt: be hyper aware of your surroundings. unfortunately it's the people in charge making the rules who tend to overreact.

    "what? 10/100/1,000 more people might die this week? oh sh*t, we better keep those other 9 million people inside their home for another month and make it impossible for them to pay their bills and put the places they used to work for out of business permanently. oh, and let's not give them any meaningful financial assistance either." how could they not realize what their decisions would do?

    bwf's revised calendar makes it hard to believe there was any common sense involved in the planning.

    Chong Wei urges BWF to drop international events this year
    By Fabian Peter - June 25, 2020 @ 7:05am
    https://www.nst.com.my/sports/badmi...-wei-urges-bwf-drop-international-events-year

    LEE Chong Wei has called on the Badminton World Federation (BWF) to scrap all international tournaments this year.

    This includes the much anticipated Thomas and Uber Cup Finals in Aarhus, Denmark on Oct 3-11 and the Malaysia Open, scheduled for November.


    According to the 38-year-old former World No 1, it is only fair to all parties as the Covid-19 pandemic is still affecting the world.


    As tournaments this year do not offer Olympic qualifying points, Chong Wei feels that competitive badminton should only resume next year.

    Commenting on top officials calling for the cancellation of the Malaysia Open in a Timesport report, Chong Wei said: "We are living in uncertain times and I know it's not easy to make decisions.

    "But as a retired player, I believe my views are unbiased. I know it's important for BWF to get tournaments running again because television rights generates revenue.

    "However, member associations like BAM will lose money hosting a tournament because they won't make much from ticket sales.

    ==================================

    "It's too risky. Just look at what happened to Djokovic and the NBA players.

    "I wish to avoid speculating but I've been hearing too many rumours.

    "Will the Thomas and Uber Cups go on as planned? Will the Olympics be postponed again?

    "In truth, no one knows. But I stand by my opinion.

    "I think it's fair for international tournaments to be cancelled this year. Just start fresh next year," added Chong Wei.

    The world governing body are expected to make several important decisions after their annual general meeting on July 18.
    ______

    *It's complicated indeed to resume international tournaments amid uncertain condition as COVID-19 pandemic is still far away from over. We'll see whether September tour will go as planned.

    Another low tier tournament has been cancelled : Lingshui China Masters 2020 (25-30 August).

    No go for China Masters disrupts BWF’s restart plans
    Friday, 03 Jul 2020
    https://www.thestar.com.my/sport/ba...for-china-masters-disrupts-bwfs-restart-plans

    PETALING JAYA: The cancellation of the Lingshui China Masters has thrown a spanner in the works of the Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) bid to restart the sport worldwide.

    The Lingshui event scheduled for Aug 25-30 became the latest tournament to be scrapped, suffering the same fate as the Hyderabad Open (Aug 11-16).

    These two lower-tier events had been listed as among the first tournaments in the revamped calendar unveiled by the BWF on May 22 in their bid to kickstart the sport after the Covid-19-forced suspension since March.

    The China BA issued a statement on their official website on Wednesday saying they would not proceed with the hosting of the Lingshui event.

    It was obvious that the organisers are taking no chances after a new outbreak has been reported in China two weeks ago. Covid-19 originated from Wuhan in China.

    Following the cancellations of the meets in Hyderabad and Lingshui, all eyes will now be on the Taiwan Open from Sept 1-6.


    The Taiwan event will mark the return of the BWF’s top-flight circuit since the completion of the All-England in mid-March.


    The condensed schedule over the next seven weeks also comprise the Korean Open (Sept 8-13), China Open (Sept 15-20), Japan Open (Sept 22-27), Thomas and Uber Cup Finals (Oct 3-11), Denmark Open (Oct 13-18) and French Open (Oct 20-25).

    The Badminton Association of Malaysia have made it clear that they will take no chances with the health and of their shuttlers by limiting their overseas assignments.

    It's still highly doubt that BWF World Tour could restart on September judging some countries are struggling and overwhelmed to control COVID-19 such as India and Indonesia meanwhile others facing second wave virus.

    I disagree with Lee Chong Wei. The virus is overfeared but actually not deadly, especially with young and healthy. So just put protocol like no person above certain ages, no under 5 years old children and of course everyone must be tested first.
