A 2018 Netflix TV show predicts correctly pandemic
A TV show on Netflix seemed to accurately predict the coronavirus pandemic back in 2018.
The 10th episode of Korean series My Secret Terrius, which was released two years ago, makes mention of the deadly illness, which has been used to refer to several viruses before it became associated with the COVID-19 outbreak.
However, in prescient scenes from the show that were highlighted by Adam Nowell, a doctor can be heard saying:
“The coronavirus attacks the respiratory system,” adding: “What’s more serious is that the coronavirus has an incubation period of two to 14 days.”
She adds: “This virus was manipulated to attack the lungs directly within just five minutes of being exposed.”
When asked if there’s a cure, she responds: “There’s no cure of vaccine available at the moment.”
Unlike real life, though, the virus in the show – which is seen being compared to SARS – was “manipulated” in an attempt to make it more contagious, although it’s remarked that the coronavirus “attacks the lungs directly within just five minutes of being exposed”.
Another moment shows children being instructed to wash their hands to prevent the virus from spreading.
