Popular psychic Slyvia Browne, who passed away in 2013, released a book called "End of Days" in 2008, and possibly predicted the coronavirus outbreak.

In "End of Days" Browne warns of a global respiratory illness that would spread in 2020.

It's important to note that at the time she was writing her book, the SARS outbreak had just happened. So was it just a lucky guess or a prophetic prediction?

Below is the excerpt from "End of Days" -

"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."

Clearly there are some generalizations in that prediction, but she did get the timing right and fairly accurately described symptoms of the coronavirus.
