This friendly competition is an attempt to encourage more people in our community to join the project. The competition is in the form of “teams” and their points they earn from completing work units and seeing who does more work.
The software can be configured to run on CPUs only, GPU only, or the default of both. The configuration is done on windows by opening the icon on taskbar (hidden icons) and selecting “advanced control”. At this time if you select any (family of) disease then the GPU will work on the Corona virus and the CPU will work on any disease.
To join a team you put the team# in to the “folding as” parameter. Your chosen name needs to be unique or else you will see the points of all the others using that name.
Which team is your choice, and I encourage any and all people to start folding at home and hope you will join one of the 2 teams the community has.

It will speed up the discoveries of drugs that can be used against the virus by disabling its ability to infect cells.
Important NOTE: Your electricity usage will increase by a certain amount depending on your hardware.
Thanks to @VaCrunch for motivation to issue this competition.
