MASTER-Amur robotic telescope  (Global MASTER-Net:, Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, 30L)  located in Russia (Blagoveshchensk State Pedagogical University) was pointed to the Swift GRB200516.63 (trigger No 972614,18h 18m 12.00s , -16d 11m 34.8s, R=0.05) errorbox  19 sec after notice time and 38 sec after trigger time at 2020-05-16 15:04:06 UT, with upper limit up to  14.6 mag. The observations began at zenith distance = 78 deg. The sun  altitude  is -20.6 deg. 

The galactic latitude b = -1 deg., longitude l = 15 deg.

Real time updated cover map and OT discovered available here:

We obtain a following upper limits.
