Martin Roberts reveals ‘global illness’ was predicted 40 years ago amid coronavirus spread
Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts, 56, shared a snippet from Dean Koontz’s book The Eyes of Darkness and End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World, written by Sylvia Browne, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
It’s all a bit SPOOKY!!!
In view of his 11,000 Instagram followers, the property expert shared snippets of the novels in which the authors claimed there will be global illness in 2020.
An eery part of Sylvia’s book reads: “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes about resting all known treatments.”
The author went on to say: “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 disappears completely.”
Dean Koontz also predicted the virus ‘Wuhan-400’ after the Chinese city, where COVID-19 is believed to have started.

The author added: “They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the four hundredth viable strain of man-made microorganisms created at that research centre.”
Martin shared his thoughts about the baffling prediction, writing: “You may or may not be aware of this… but it’s all a bit SPOOKY!!!
“A book, published nearly 40 years ago predicting what’s going on. Keep Healthy.”
Many of his followers flocked to his page to comment.
One user wrote: “Now that is worrying,” while another commented: “I’m loving the fact it will disappear as quickly as it arrived. Lets hope that’s true!”
A third penned: “Wtf? Too scary!”
Another claimed the snippet from the book is fake.
