My sister and I were talking about how this book that was written in 1981 mentions coronavirus in not so many words. I found it bizzar that someone had written about it 38 years ago. Here are some pic of what was written. What are your thoughts on it? Do you find it fascinating or not

Incredible - I'm going out but will be checking this out later. Unless some form of hoax - it seems, from the screenshots, that it's beyond the realms of any coincidence.

Dani1 I'm the same as you but I know it kind of not the same but think about back to the future with the prediction of smartphones and how Simpsons had a character called President trump. Now I find that fascinating to

Billie I know what you mean. The Simpsons have made some spooky predictions. I find it fascinating too. That book really has thrown me if it's not a hoax 😨

Billie I've just returned - I did have a quick look for that book but didn't find it - I'll check online later. One thing being correct is remarkable but, place, year, name and some other things, being exact, made that incredible.

It gave me the shivers reading so I had to go away and find out more. This is the latest from Reuters. Still a bit sinister though.

Thanks for that angemski - it does prove that not everything on the internet is correct and that there are some people who try to embelish the truth, (this does not refer to the opening poster who might well have thought it to be true).☺

It saved me buying the book too.☺

Your first image: 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. Is NOT from Dean Koontz’s book - The Eyes of Darkness

It’s been lifted from a different book altogether. Sylvia Brown’s End Of Days: Predictions and prophecies about the end of the world

I wonder if this is true.

Me and my brother were talking about this and I brought up the fact it very well may be government based to cull a % of population.

But that was a theory in a chat lol
