Amid all the bizarre conspiracy theories pinging across the media an intriguing prophecy of Sylvia Browne, an American psychic about coronavirus in her book in ‘End of Days’ has gripped the attention of social media users.
Sylvia Browne was a physic who claimed to have the ability to foresee the future. In her book, End of Days, Browne predicted, “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 arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely.”
As the passage from the book resurface many people believe that, Sylvia Browne had predicted about the COVID-19.
She further describes the illness in her book. She says it will be a pneumonia-like illness that will attack the lungs and bronchial tubes. She said that it will soon spread across the world and it will resist all sorts of known treatments.
She further describes the illness: “Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely.”
According to research, she made a similar prediction in her 2004’s book “Prophecy: What the Future Holds for You”

She had made a similar prophecy in her book as well. “By 2020 we’ll see more people than ever wearing surgical masks and rubber gloves in public, inspired by an outbreak of a severe pneumonia-like illness that attacks both the lungs and the bronchial tubes and is ruthlessly resistant to treatment. This illness will be particularly baffling in that, after causing a winter of absolute panic, it will seem to vanish completely until ten years later, making both its source and its cure that much more mysterious.”
Another widely shared prophecy on social media was by American author Dean Koontz, who had predicted the outbreak of coronavirus in his book The Eyes of Darkness published in 1981.
The novel revolves around a grieving mother investigating the mysterious circumstances of the death of her son. The book refers to a deadly virus known as “Wuhan-400”, a city in China from where the virus had originated.
The excerpt in the book discussed the biological warfare weapon.
“A Chinese scientist … defected to the United States, carrying a diskette record of China’s most important and dangerous new biological weapon in a decade,” the character in the novel says.
“They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside the city of Wuhan. Wuhan-400 is the perfect weapon,” he says.
The resurgence of an excerpt from the book in February last month has thrived several conspiracy theories since then where states are employing it as a tool to deflect the blame of spreading coronavirus from themselves and demean their opponents.
