It shouldn't have been held in the first place. Difficult for the players and their families to focus when the pandemic is all across. Feel especially for Teimour for he did voice his protest and there is no way FIDE can compensate for his loss.

Not impossible  for Ding but highly unlikely. For sure Radjabov was hard done by, so maybe Fide should consider seeding him directly into the next candidates as part compensation for his damages.

Kevin it is not fair you cant see who is in good shape after 2 years he is a good player now and he has a chance to win candidates after 2 years he will be old and who knows what will happen 2 years after

There is no perfect solution. If the Tournament is restarted to let in Radjabov, it is not fair to the tournament leaders now, its just a mess. The best compromise is to seed Radjabov directly into next candidates, I am sure he will be motivated to stay in shape and if he is not he will choose not to play, he is a proud guy after all. 

At this point I see no better way out of this, it is what it is.
