1  SIRUNYAN 2020BC based on ($1.7$ $\pm0.1$) nb${}^{-1}$ of lead-lead collision data at a nucleon-nucleon c.m. energy of 5.02 TeV. It makes use of the final-state dilepton kinematic properties together with requirements on the number of ${{\mathit b}}$-jets. The measured value is compatible with QCD predictions.
