With Coronavirus infections on the rise, and the world in panic due to the pandemic; many are making claims, with social media platforms flooded with different conspiracy theories since the outbreak began.
Some have claimed that the virus was predicted in a book entitled ‘The Eyes of Darkness’ which was written in 1981.
Others have said that the virus originated due to a failed experiment in China.
With all of these claims circulating, expert and book writer, Mackenzie Sage Wright has decided to voice her own thoughts and opinions.
Speaking to MensVariety, she has stated that the world was first warned of the coronavirus in 1555.
“Any fool can see that Nostradamus could see exactly what is happening now with this virus.
“None of us should be surprised at what’s happening.
“You can only trash the planet for so long before Mother Nature fights back.”
Many believe that Michele de Nostredame, or Nostradamus as he is more widely known as, was a prophet; who penned many visions of the future, most of which were published in Magnum Opus Les Propheties.
Many believe that he correctly predicted The Great Fire of London in 1666, as well as the rise of Adolf Hitler to power in 1933.

Stated Mackenzie Sage Wright.
But did Nostradamus correctly predict COVID-19?
The prediction is said to have been made in a short poem entitled ‘quatrains’. However, the passages are vague and require a large amount of personal interpretation.
The passage reads:
“Newcomers, place built without defence,
“Place occupied then uninhabitable: Meadows, houses, fields, towns to take at pleasure,
“Famine, plague, war, extensive land arable.”
Skeptics believe the poem to be too vague to have any significance, believing that the Coronavirus isn’t severe enough to be classed as a plague.
Science writer and podcast host, Brian Dunning argued that the method of interpreting Nostradamus’ poems falls within the realm of conspiracy theorie, stating:
“How accurate are his predictions? You could fill a library with books claiming to match quatrains with major events in world history – all, of course, deciphered and published after those events occurred.”
“The straight fact is that nobody has ever used Nostradamus’ writings to predict a future event in specific terms which later came true.
