Chilling 40-year-old book PREDICTED ‘Wuhan biological weapon’ outbreak.
CORONAVIRUS may have been predicted more than 40 years ago in a science-fiction book referring to a “new biological weapon” created by a Chinese scientist to “wipe out a city or country”.
Coronavirus has now taken the lives of more than 2,100 in China as the number of confirmed cases reaches 76,000 worldwide, as South Korea reports a surge of cases has led to their first fatality yesterday. US Senator Tom Cotton raised eyebrows earlier this week when he claimed the virus was either an experiment gone wrong, or a purposely released biological weapon. But, a book from 1981 chillingly predicts a similar rhetoric.
