Book from 1981 predicted coronavirus in bizarre coincidence

Author Dean Koontz eerily predicted the coronavirus outbreak in his 1981 thriller “The Eyes of Darkness.”

The fictional novel tells the story of a Chinese military lab that creates a new virus to potentially use as a biological weapon during wartime. The lab is ironically located in Wuhan, China and the made-up virus is called Wuhan-400.

In the novel, the virus is called the “perfect weapon” because it only affects humans. It also cannot survive outside the human body for more than a minute and does not require an expensive decontamination process once it spreads through a population and those who contract it.

Here are screenshots of the reference to the Wuhan coronavirus in Dean Koontz book:


Another author, Sylvia Browne who died in 2013 wrote a book with similar predictions.

She mentioned the Wuhan Research Facility, saying the virus will be developed in the facility and how it will be spread across the globe.

She calls it the Wuhan-400 virus. Eerie as it is, the two authors made these bold predictions and today, it happened!


in any case, it reinforces the conspiracy theorists assertions that China deliberately made the virus available in public.

A Republican Senator did mention that he believes the virus was made in the Wuhan facility and distributed to public places.

But in the book by Sylvia Browne, she says the virus cannot permanently contaminate objects. It also disappears as fast it appears and there will be another attack in 20 years time.
