An excerpt from the novel “The Eyes of Darkness” written by Dean Koontz catches the attention of people across the globe after the famous thriller author “predicted” the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak 40 years ago.
The novel, which was published in 1981, tells a story of a Chinese military lab that creates a virus as part of its biological weapons program.
The virus was referred to as “Wuhan-400.”
In chapter 39 of the book, Koontz writes that the lab is located in Wuhan, China — epicenter of the 2020 coronavirus outbreak.
Congress leader Manish Tewari has also tweeted excerpts from a book that went viral on the Internet that the coronavirus involved in the outbreak in China’s Wuhan appears to be man-made.
“Is Coranavirus a biological Weapon developed by the Chinese called Wuhan -400? This book was published in 1981. Do read the excerpt,” Congress leader Manish Tewari tweeted.
Tewari highlighted a paragraph that read: “They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the four-hundredth viable strain of man-made micro-organisms created at that center.”
