Well, a few years back, no one would have thought that the world will have to deal with such a devastating crisis. But it seems like one person knew what was coming and had predicted the pandemic way back in 2013. A tweet predicting coronavirus by a random Twitter user is going viral on the internet right now and people are extremely intrigued. On June 3, 2013, a Twitter user named @Marco_Acorte wrote, "Corona virus .its coming."
As the tweet resurfaced on the Internet, netizens were taken by surprise over the post predicting the virus 8 years ago. Some couldn't believe it and claimed that the user has hacked Twitter to change the date. Others were obviously freaked out by by this prediction and flooded his tweet with memes and hilarious comments. Notably, Marco has posted nothing on Twitter since 2016, and a smiling emoji was his last tweet.
Last year, a thriller novel 'The Eyes of Darkness', written by Dean Koontz in 1981, mentioned a virus named Wuhan-400. In the novel, the virus was created as a weapon in a laboratory. The novel talks of a Chinese military lab that creates a virus as part of its biological weapons program.
