Prophecy? A Virus Called Wuhan-400 Causes Outbreak in Dean Koontz Novel ‘Eyes of Darkness’ From 1981


How is it that some books appear to prophesy events?

A virus called Wuhan-400 causes outbreak … in a Dean Koontz thriller from 1981.

This is so weird. It’s a kind of prophecy! In Dean Koontz’s 1981 thriller ‘The Eyes of Darkness’, a virus named Wuhan-400 is developed in Wuhan, China to be used as a biological weapon, but is finally contracted by humans.

And in another strange coincidence, one of the only lab in China allowed to work on the deadliest viruses around the world is located in Wuhan and helped sequencing the real-life coronavirus we are currently battling.

A chilling coincidence?

In The Eyes of Darkness, a grieving mother, Christina Evans, sets out to discover whether her son Danny died on a camping trip or if – as suspicious messages suggest – he is still alive.

She eventually tracks him down to a military facility where he is being held after being accidentally contaminated with man-made microorganisms created at the research centre in Wuhan.

And now read this passage of the book:

It was around that time that a Chinese scientist named Li Chen moved to the United States while carrying a floppy disk of data from China’s most important and dangerous new biological weapon of the past decade.

They call it Wuhan-400 because it was developed in their RDNA laboratory just outside the city of Wuhan.

Or a unconscious prophecy?

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is real. And it’s one of China’s only level four biosafety laboratory where they can study the deadliest viruses (and probably mutate some). And it sits just 32km from the epicentre of the current coronavirus outbreak.

Many theories about the origin of the current viral epidemic say the outbreak appears to be man-made and likely escaped from the Wuhan virology lab. Many have been rapidly debunked, mostly because the lab was one of the first to sequence the coronavirus. (But if they ‘made’ it, it’s easy to sequence it rapidly, no?)

Like in Koontz’s thriller, I consider this virus a “perfect weapon.” But what are the odds of him so closely predicting the future? More prophecy updates on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [SCMP]

  1. Prophecy or planning world affairs generations in advance? George Orwells 1984 was prophecy or a geopolitical blueprint only the designers were able to understand, while the rest of us had no choice and view it as entertainment? Brave New World? Hollywood?

  2. seoul (South Korea) Feb 23: Eighteen South Koreans who recently made a group pilgrimage to Israel have been confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus, the health authorities said Sunday.
    According to the authorities, 28 out of the 39 Catholic pilgrims tested positive for the COVID-19 virus the previous day.
    Most of the pilgrims are from North Gyeongsang Province, the southeastern region of the country that has reported the most new cases. They went to Israel on Feb. 8 and returned home on Feb. 16, while their tour guide is living in the capital city of Seoul.
    The health authorities said they are closely examining the transmission route of the patients and strengthening the monitoring of all the members to prevent further infections.
    Moreover, 37 people from Jeju Island made a separate pilgrimage to Israel from Feb. 11-21, according to the authorities. One of them is being checked for the virus after complaining of symptoms of the coronavirus.
    Consequently, the Catholic Times, the Daegu-based religious newspaper that arranged the pilgrimage tour, said it has shut down its offices in Seoul and Daegu and put all its employees under quarantine.
    Also, the Catholic diocese of Andong that covers more than half of North Gyeongsang Province has decided to shut down 40 churches under its jurisdiction and suspend all masses, meetings and events for three weeks.
    Meanwhile, the Israeli government has banned South Koreans from entering the country out of fear over the spread of the highly contagious virus.
    So far, South Korea has reported a total of 556 coronavirus infections, with four deaths from the novel virus.

    sO BASICALLY ALL OF THEM HAS covid-19 Also means COVOID 19 is in Israel as well? Or just they do not give you numbers. We told Israel that infection will come to Israel unless close border lines? Every Israelis has all gas masks, colloidal silver and everything they need food water etc?

  3. Corona Virus is in Las Vegas , WA and since LAS VEGAS is in
    transit cities and with massive 5G network. People immune systems are very low same as Wuhan China. I do warn people of Las Vegas that every one leaves with in 1/2 mile of cell phone towers with massive 5G ,That is why so much killings, so much disturbances, and not a safe city at all. See how many towers are in Las Vegas? 5G could require cell towers on every street corner
    The upcoming 5G wireless is expected to deliver speeds up to 10 times faster than what consumers see on today’s 4G LTE networks, but 5G could also mean millions of new cell phone towers.Good luck with Vegas you all will Frye in and out. Corona Virus will be soon highly increased cities in USA with 5 G due to low immune system.
