I need not tell you but I will, the world is currently suffering under the threat of a global pandemic called COVID-19.
Coronavirus, as most of us are still calling it, is spreading like wildfire across the globe. So far more than 350,000 people have been infected; 15,000 of whom have tragically died.
Twelve years ago, back in 2008, none of us would have expected this. A pandemic of this scale has not attacked the entire world since the Spanish Flu pandemic 100 years ago.
However one so-called mystic, Sylvia Browne, seemingly predicted the spread of Coronavirus in her book: End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies About the End of the World.
After her prophecies went viral, the book shot up the best seller lists and is currently situated at number two on Amazon.
But just what did she say, well:
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.
Pretty eerie huh.

While it is certainly strange that Browne made such a peculiarly accurate prediction, it must be said that most of her prophecies resulted in nothing – and I personally believe that if you make enough predictions through life, you’re bound to get something right.
As for her accuracy on the ‘severe pneumonia-like illness’ it’s also worth pointing out that her prophecy was made shortly after the very similar SARS outbreak.
But hey, it’s still kinda interesting.
