    TTH Pandemic Predictions Thread (draft)

    Let's get a nice big list of predictions for absolutely anything. Let's just get ideas up and then later tomorrow I'll make the proper thread. Examples:

    Countries (population >1,000) to have no deaths (five choices).

    Will the Premier League be cancelled?

    Will these events go ahead: Euros, Glastonbury, Grand National (need more)?

    First TTHer to test positive

    First TTHer to die

    First politician to die?

    First celebrity to die?

    First musical that Jimmy describes as "marvellous."

    Will live television be halted? If so, what date?

    Who will get the virus first out of Philip Schofield and Graham Norton?

    Country of the first vaccine:

    Country of the first successful vaccine:

    Final UK Cases

    Final UK Deaths

    Final Worldwide Cases

    Final Worldwide Deaths

    What date will Haxball be resumed?

    Date Okay_Amigo posts to say he was the first confirmed case in Iceland

    First person to think they can just slunk back into all the epic banter we're going to be having.

    I'm just looking for some extra ideas in this thread, not predictions.

    Nice. It's all coming together. It doesn't have to be corona related, though.

    That's already Lee, isn't it?

    It is a bit pathetic coming back like that. It isn't a bug deal, people come and go all the time. There's a thread idea, actually.

    He's probably been asked by 'Daws' to come and throw us a few crumbs. I'm talking about the first person to think they can just slunk back into all the epic banter we're going to be having.

    What year will Jimmy make it to?
    How many weeks will schools be closed?

    I suppose I have a vested interest in the second, and it could even be zero.
