Japan’s Fugaku supercomputer, the world’s fastest in terms of computing speed, went into full operation Tuesday, earlier than initially scheduled, in the hope that it can be used for research related to the novel coronavirus.

The supercomputer, named after an alternative word for Mount Fuji, became partially operational in April last year to visualize how droplets that could carry the virus spread from the mouth and to help explore possible treatments for COVID-19.
