Amid the ceaseless news coverage of the worrisome coronavirus crisis, a surprising name has emerged from the past to capture the attention of people online: the late psychic Sylvia Browne, who is being credited by some for predicting the pandemic twelve years ago.
This strange turn of events came about in recent days as an excerpt from the self-described medium’s 2008 book End of Days has gone viral online due to its uncanny description of what has been unfolding in America and around the world.
Specifically, Browne wrote that “in around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.” As one can imagine, the matching date and general description of the coronavirus has led many to conclude that the self-proclaimed psychic correctly foresaw the current crisis. The eerie excerpt was even amplified by Kim Kardashian, (https://twitter.com/KimKardashian/status/1237924116486688768?s=20)
of all people, when she shared the odd prediction with her enormous audience of social media followers on Tuesday evening.
