Coronavirus: Did Nostradamus predict the deadly Virus?

Prophecy of ‘great plague’

THE CORONAVIRUS epidemic has killed more than 3,000 people and infected nearly 100,000 worldwide (officialy – but did the 16th-century mystic Nostradamus predict the coronavirus epidemic when he warned of a “great plague” nearly 500 years ago?

The infection has since spread to more than 39 countries outside of China, including 156 people from the UK, fuelling fears for humanity’s safety.

Coronavirus infections have been confirmed in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, the US, Australia, Singapore, Macau, Malaysia, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, the UAE, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Canada and Nepal among others.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has dubbed the outbreak a global emergency but has not called it a pandemic just yet. 

Some have even bizarrely claimed the 15th-century writer and supposed mystic Nostradamus predicted the outbreak of a “great plague” in the future.

Twitter user Marco Malacara said: “The antichrist leading the White House, locusts, floods, flies, coronavirus. I think this is what Nostradamus was telling us about 465 years ago.”

Another person tweeted in Spanish, which translated reads: “The plague of the 21st century has arrived. A Nostradamus prophecy. We will die very soon. #coronavirus”
