The death toll from the coronavirus in Japan has dropped sharply.
The report was published by The Japan Times.
Scientists at the Japan State Institute of Natural Sciences have found that the low mortality rate from coronavirus is due to Japanese genetics.
Experts have found that the HLA-A24 antigen molecule, which helps prevent a serious course of the disease, is present in about 60% of Japanese, and only 10-20% in Europe and the United States.
When the virus enters the body, the defense mechanism of the HLA-A24 antigen is activated, which triggers a strong immune response in the white blood cells that kill the infected cells.
In Japan, less than 200 infections have been reported in the past day, with no deaths among COVID-19 patients.
