Netizens are considering if this 1981 novel predicted the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“The Eyes of Darkness” is a 1981 thriller novel by Dean Koontz. It tells a story of a disease created in a research center in Wuhan, China.
According to the author, Wuhan-400 is “China’s most important and dangerous: new biological weapon in a decade”.
Knowing the internet, they went crazy over the uncanny coincidence of the fiction to the reality. Here are some of their reactions:
#COVID2019 In 1981 Dean Koontz published his fiction book The eye of darkness and it talks about a virus created in Chinese military lab in Wuhan!
he named the virus Wuhan-400 which can be used as biological weapon and the virus will spread in 2020. Coincidence? Hmmm 🤔🤔
