A plane believed to be conveying coronavirus medical supplies has crashed during takeoff.
The aircraft, bound for Haneda, Japan, crashed at Manila International Airport in the Philippines, killing all the eight people on board yesterday.
It had reportedly been chartered by the government and was carrying emergency supplies to the country as it battles against the spread of coronavirus.
Cases of coronavirus in Japan, where the plane was destined, have spiked in the last few days as the government held off placing the country on lockdown.
