It has been months but the world continues to battle with a deadly pandemic that goes by the name of Coronavirus. The fact that there have been lakhs of cases and thousands of deaths across the globe is extremely devastating. Well, amid such national health crisis, people over the internet are coming across various theories that prove how way before COVID-19 widespread, there were some warnings or signs about more or less a similar pandemic that were ignored. Something very similar is the case of a television show called Dead Zone, which aired in the year 2003. Yes!
In one of its episodes titled Plague, Johnny Smith, a retired school teacher, gets a vision of how a group of children get severely ill after contracting a mysterious virus. He then informs the sheriff about the same and urges him to get the school building quarantined after a lot of children to get infected. The episode then shows how a local health inspector, while trying to investigate the origin of the virus, reveals that China is the source of it and people who have recently travelled are likely to transmit it.
Further, it talks about how US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also known as the CDC, is expected to take months to find its cure. Well, that isn’t it! The episode also has a mention of an immediate lockdown to stop its further spreading, something which almost all the countries are going through at this point.
Take a look:
It is being said that this particular episode predicted the similar chain of events that all of us are witnessing since the beginning of Coronavirus pandemic. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
