In Japan, a gale has deployed a parked Boeing 737-800
April 14, 2020, AEX.RU - At Tokyo Narita International Airport, a gale wind turned 90 degrees parked at the passenger arm of the Boeing 737-800 of Japan Airlines (JAL).
The plane has been at the Narita airport since April 5, when the JAL suspended a significant part of the flights due to the coronavirus. The front and rear landing gear were fixed with wooden blocks. However, a gale with a speed of about 25 m / s, which began on the evening of April 13, was able to deploy the aircraft. Apparently, strong impulses knocked out pads from under the wheels.
During a U-turn, the aircraft touched the passenger "sleeve" with the wing console, as a result of which damage was formed, measuring 7 by 25 centimeters.
Currently, the aircraft is fixed with metal blocks. JAL has already stated that it is carefully investigating the causes of the incident in order to prevent similar incidents in the future.
Virologists in Japan have found a medicine that blocks the activity of coronavirus
In Japan, virologists have determined the beneficial properties of an already known drug that can become effective in the fight against coronavirus.
Doctors from Tokai University in Isehar discovered that the drug nelfinavir can block the activity and replication of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (it is the causative agent of Covid-19 infection - Ed.).
The results of a study of Japanese virologists leads the scientific portal bioRxiv.
Nelfinavir is an antiretroviral drug. It is used to treat HIV in combination with similar medicines. Japanese scientists studied nine similar drugs and looked at how they affect the particles of the new coronavirus. As a result, they found a pattern in the use of nelfinavir and a decrease in the replication activity of SARS-CoV-2.
At the same time, doctors noted that there is still no proven remedy against the new coronavirus, therefore, effective antiviral drugs should be tested.

Coronavirus: Japan introduced a state of emergency for a month
Japanese authorities have declared a state of emergency due to the spread of coronavirus, and also talked about a billion-dollar stimulus package to deal with the country's largest crisis since World War II.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said at a press conference that a state of emergency is being introduced, as Tokyo and other densely populated areas are increasingly affected by Covid-19, and now he has to rethink approaches to curbing the epidemic.
An emergency regime was introduced until May 6 and will initially affect Tokyo and six other prefectures.
So far, Japan has managed to avoid a surge in the incidence of Covid-19 and a large number of deaths from it. In the country, more than 3900 infected with coronavirus were detected, 91 people died. These numbers are not as high as in countries at the epicenter of the pandemic, but the number of new cases in the capital continues to grow steadily, especially among young people.
The imposition of a state of emergency gives prefectural leaders the power to urge people to stay home and close secondary businesses, but these measures will not be as severe as in the United States and some European countries.
In addition, the Japanese government unveiled a billions-dollar stimulus package. Coronavirus has already increased the risk of recession in the country.
Although the Tokyo authorities have already called on citizens to slow down their normal lives and stay at home, it is believed that due to an outbreak in the capital, a state of emergency was required to be introduced earlier.
