The benchmark 225-issue Nikkei average nose-dived Friday to end below 22,000 for the first time in a month, as risk aversion intensified amid growing concerns over the negative economic impacts of the raging novel coronavirus.

The Nikkei fell 629.23 points, or 2.82 percent, to end at 21,710.00 after losing 57.88 points Thursday.
