The fake, amazing in its impudence, was exposed by the Russian scientist Vladimir Belousov, who lives in Japan:
“Forgive me, but I am also a person and I just don’t have the strength to look at such news for years and keep silent.
Avifavir, Favilavir, Avigan are the international trade names for the Japanese antiviral drug, favipiravir, which, prior to these international names, was designated as the T-705 developer index. Proof: https://www.sciencedirect.com/.../arti.../pii/S0163725820300401…
Favipiravir was developed by Japanese scientists and was first described by them in 2002. Proof: https://aac.asm.org/content/46/4/977.short
In February 2020, this drug was tested by Chinese scientists and I wrote about it in those days (hereinafter the text of my article of March 17, 2020, I was seriously ill with coronavirus and monitored all the news related to the medicine for this disease):
"The director of the China National Center for Biotechnology Development, Mr. Zhang Xinmin, at a press conference last Tuesday (March 17, 2020) in Beijing, officially stated that the drug developed in Japan was found to be effective in clinical trials by two independent medical organizations and emphasized that the medicine acts on the symptoms associated with coronavirus, including pneumonia, and has no obvious side effects. Mr. Zhang Xinmin explained that the tests were carried out in Wuhan and Shenzhen, and 240 and 80 patients, respectively, took part in them. , they recovered on average after 4 days, while other people in the control group who did not receive the Japanese antiviral drug took 11 days to recover, and the study also showed an improvement in lung condition in about 91 percent of the patients given the medicine. Zhang Xinmin noted that the drug is safe and effective. t is obvious and therefore recommended for use as a means of combating a new virus. The Chinese company, which bought the license to manufacture the drug from Japanese developers, has already received approval from the Chinese government for the mass production of the Japanese antiviral drug. The shares of the Japanese company Fujifilm Toyama Chemical, which developed the antiviral drug, after a statement by the representatives of the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology about its apparent effectiveness, instantly rose in price by 14.7% to 5,207 yen (briefly reaching a daily maximum of 5,238 yen)".
The end of the article.
The news was published on March 17 on the NHK website (Japanese State Public Broadcasting Center).
On February 22, 2020, the Russian state television channel “Russia 24” made a story that China began production of the Japanese antiviral drug, the first medicine against coronavirus, as it received official approval from the Chinese authorities and was included in the list of drugs that is potentially effective in the treatment of a dangerous infection.

But yesterday (June 3rd, 2020) a miracle happened!
Quotes from the video “Russia 24” to this article:
“The success of Russian pharmaceuticals!” “Scientists in the world have not yet achieved such effectiveness against COVID-19!” “The average duration of the disease with favipiravir was reduced from 9 days to 4 days!”
(see above the statement of the Director of the China National Center for Biotechnology Development, Mr. Zhang Xinmin, who on March 15, 2020 at a press conference indicated that those who were given the Japanese medicine favipiravir recovered on average 4 days later, while other people from the control group who did not receive the Japanese antiviral drug, it took an average of 11 days to recover).
Director General - Chairman of the Board of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, Kirill Dmitriev, cannot say in the video “RUSSIA 24” that the drug was simply stolen and took the lead in its development, but he could not repeat to the Russian media that he also invented the antiviral drug from scratch maybe, because it’s just unrealistic fantastic nonsense (an agonizing struggle of lies and conscience is visible on Dmitriev’s face, who knows and understands everything perfectly) and therefore we hear such an absurd phrase uttered in an undertone - “the Japanese drug was slightly improved and the protocol of its reception was slightly changed sick. " What a cutie - a little bit improved.
But the fact remains. All Russian media exploded in a sensational headline:
Russia was the first and first in the world to invent a drug from COVID19 - Avifavir (Favilavir, Avigan, Favipiravir).
... the truth, this drug was created by the Japanese company Toyama Chemical in 2014 and in February 2020 it was successfully tested in China and received confirmation as an effective drug against COVID-19.
Here are just China (like the other 80 countries) requested permission to manufacture this drug from Japan, and in Russia it was "FIRST AND FIRST IN THE WORLD INVENTED".
"I wish all countries of the world successful conclusion of partnership agreements with Japan, and I heartily congratulate Russia on the next scientific achievement!"
