Her name is Sylvia Browne and over a decade ago, she wrote a book called End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies About the End of the World. It’s not exactly a cheery read but in it, she writes about a “a severe pneumonia-like illness”.
“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread through the globe, attacking the lungs and bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.”

Like Browne’s predicted disease, coronavirus can result in antibiotic-resistant pneumonia in some, however the majority of patients will only experience mild cold and flu-like symptoms. Credit to her, it has so far resulted in 128,325 global cases, with 199 cases in Australia.
But, if Browne is correct, she also said the disease will “suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived.”
“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 disappear completely,” she wrote.
But before you go off and buy her book, keep in mind that Browne – now deceased – attracted her fair share of infamy during her career. In a 2004 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Browne told the parents of teen kidnapping victim, Amanda Berry that their daughter had passed away and that she had a vision of Berry’s jacket in the garbage with “DNA on it”. Berry escaped in 2013 but her mother, Louwana Miller had passed away two years prior.
In 2002 she also told the parents of 11-year-old kidnapping victim, Shawn Hornbeck, that he had been taken by a dark-skinned Hispanic man with dreadlocks and had since passed away. The teenager was found alive in 2007 and his kidnapper was a short-haired Caucasian man named, Michael J. Devlin.
Browne also appeared on Larry King Live in 2003 and said that she would die at the age of 88. Instead she passed away aged 77 in 2013.
