Shocking! This 1981 novel accurately predicted Coronavirus

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 • Telugu Comments

It was recently reported by sections of Telugu media that Pothuluru Veerabrahmendra Swamy, who lived in the Kadapa district in the 17th Century, vaguely predicted the phenomenon of Coronavirus in his book 'Kalagnanam'. It's not known how accurate it was or whether he actually meant Coronavirus. But what has come out now is extremely strange.

Back in 1981, an English-language thriller novel named 'The Eyes of Darkness', penned by author Dean Koontz, mentioned a virus named Wuhan-400. This deadly virus was created as a weapon in a laboratory in this fiction. Turns out that Coronavirus originated from Wunan in China. So far, it has killed 1700 people, besides causing a residential lockdown of millions and millions of Chinese.

Congress leader Manish Tewari has taken note of the novel and said, "Is Coranavirus a biological Weapon developed by the Chinese called Wuhan -400?"

A paragraph highlighted by the Congressman says: "They call the stuff 'Wuhan-400' because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the 400th viable strain of man-made micro-organisms created at that centre."

Scary fiction, isn't it?
