A book predicted 2020 coronavirus outbreak 12 years ago.
Remember we told you about a novel that predicted the coronavirus outbreak 40 years ago? It was a thriller, The Eyes of Darkness, written by Dean Koontz. Looks like it is not the only piece of fiction that predicted the coronavirus outbreak.
A book titled End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World, written by Sylvia Browne, also predicted the global outbreak of coronavirus.
The book was first published in 2008. A photo of an excerpt from the book is going viral across social media platforms and is spooky enough to reach for that box of tissues to wipe your sweat.
“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe,
attacking the lungs and bronchial tubes resisting all known treatments,” the excerpt read.
Doesn’t it sound very similar to this novel coronavirus and the disease, Covid-19? Be it the nature of the illness,
the year mentioned or the part about the resistance to treatments – the similarity with coronavirus is uncanny.
The excerpt also mentioned that the illness will vanish soon after its arrival. “Almost more baffling than the illness.
itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrives, attack again ten years later and then disappear completely.”
Netizens are absolutely stumped with the reference of coronavirus outbreak in the book. Check out some of the reactions here:
Coronavirus has spread to over 50 countries and has claimed over 3,000 lives. Medical experts are yet to find a cure for Covid-19.
In India alone, there are 28 confirmed cases of Covid-19 as of Wednesday evening.

But there is another author who many claim predicted the outbreak of a deadly contagion in the years 2020.
In her 2008 book End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World, supposed psychic Sylvia Browne wrote of a pneumonia outbreak ravaging the world.
The book reads: “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.
“Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it has arrived, attack again 10 years later, and then disappear completely.”
The brief passage has sparked the imaginations of many social media users who believe it matches the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
