Author Dean Koontz
Apparently American author, Dean Koontz, predicted the outbreak in his novel The Eyes of Darkness in 1981. Koontz makes reference in his novel to a virus called “Wuhan-400” – which very widely predicts the Chinese city where all of this pandemic mayhem would emerge from.
Sadly, the predictions really are not that strong besides that main one point. Wuhan-400 has a 100% kill rate and was developed in a lab – stated in Koontz book and was used as a biological weapon.
