Pandemia and Coronavirus book. The Eyes of Darkness

Author: Dean Koontz

Dean Koontz’s The Eyes of Darkness (Pocket Books) may be nearly 40 years old, but the book seems to be getting attention once again. Amid the coronavirus, a photograph of one of the novel’s pages  circulated online with many questioning whether the author actually predicted what would become to be known as COVID-19. In Koontz’s 1981 book, he writes of a deadly virus called the “Wuhan 400,” which he described as a “severe pneumonia-like illness” that attacks “the lungs and bronchial tubes” and “resisting all known treatments.”
