Coronavirus: Kim Kardashian shares passage from psychic's book that may have predicted the global outbreak
She shared an excerpt from Browne's book titled 'End Of Days' which said 'severe pneumonia-like illness' would take place globally in 2020
Kim Kardashian shared an excerpt from a book written by psychic Sylvia Browne that claimed to predict the coronavirus outbreak years before.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star shared a picture from the 2009 book titled 'End Of Days: Predictions and Prophecies About the End of the World' that was written by the late author who had claimed to be a psychic. As per the excerpt, a "severe pneumonia-like illness" would take place globally in 2020. Kim had circled that particular passage in the book and shared it on her Twitter handle and Instagram stories.
She wrote, "Kourtney just sent this on our group chat." Browne had written that the 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."
Browne had written the book with Lindsay Harrison and it was published around five years before her death in 2013 at the age of 77. According to snopes.com, the SARS virus had occurred a few years before she had published the book, which may have inspired the passage.
The mention of "pneumonia-like illness" seems to describe the illness fairly accurately. The excerpt went viral across social media platforms and some users even connected it to a cryptic passage from Dean Koontz's 1983 thriller, 'The Eyes Of Darkness,' that talks about a "strain of man-made microorganism called Wuhan-400".
The COVID-19 caused by the novel coronavirus was first reported in China's city of Wuhan, though the virus was not man-made.
Earlier on Wednesday, Kim revealed her preferred method of meeting and interacting with people while keeping disease transmission low. She shared a short clip of a friend and visiting doctor bumping their feet against each other rather than shaking hands. She shared, "So you should not do elbows, because you cough into your elbow. So no more elbows!"
