What will the quarter-on-quarter US Q1 2020 GDP growth rate be, according to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis Advance Estimate?

Question

Every quarter, the US Bureau of Economic Analysis releases an Advance Estimate of GDP growth in the previous three months. The Advance Estimate is the first estimate of gross domestic product and its components for a quarter.

You can see historical quarterly GDP growth rates for the United States here.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is considerable concern that the economy will be adversely affected by widespread disruption in the US and internationally.

This question asks: What will the US Q1 2020 GDP growth rate percentage be, according to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis Advance Estimate?

This data is expected to be released on April 29 2020. Resolution should cite the BEA's Advance Estimate, rather than any later revisions.
