The excerpt reads, “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.” Creeped out yet? Wait there is more. It further reads, “Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it has arrived, attack again 10 years later, and then disappear completely.”

2. Contagion

The movie ‘Contagion’ starring Gwyneth Paltrow was released in 2011 and described the virus outbreak which originated from Hongkong. The fictional virus which is known as MEV- 1 in the movie is shown to kill 20 percent of people affected with it.


Awestruck? More to come.

3. The Future-teller Simpsons

The longest-running animated comedy series is master in predicting major world events.

And they had predicted about a virus too in 1993. A viral collection of images, apparently taken from the 1993 episode of Simpsons are going viral on social media. In the Simpsons, the viral flu is seen to be originating from Japan and not China as the workers ship the Osaka Flu to Springfield.
