The internet is getting shocked over a spine-chilling mention of the deadly Coronavirus in a Netflix TV show, wait for it, released in 2018. It’s a Korean TV series titled “My Treasure, Terrius.”
The show has started to invite views again as many of its fans believe that it predicted the Coronavirus pandemic we are facing right now.
According to the synopsis of My Secret Terrius: “A secret agent who detaches himself from the world after a failed operation tries to unravel the mystery behind a neighbor’s death.”
At around 53 mins into the 10th episode of My Secret Terrius Season 1, there is a scene from a hospital. A doctor hands over a medical report envelope to a woman.
“We must do more research, but it looks like a mutant Coronavirus,” the doctor tells the woman.
“Corona? Then MERS?” the woman asks with a confused face.
“MERS, SARS, the common flu. They all fall in the same family with the same gene information. The Coronavirus attacks the respiratory system,” the Doctor starts explaining.
“During the 2015 MERS epidemic, the mortality rate was over 20 percent.”
“But that’s not serious enough to be used as a weapon. Am I wrong?” the woman replies.
At first, it seems like a usual mention of the coronavirus, which is a family of viruses. It is responsible for medical conditions such as the common cold which people get almost every year.
But, as you keep watching, the words of the doctor will start numbing your mind.
“Like I said, this a mutant virus,” the doctor continues. “Someone tweaked it to increase the mortality rate to almost 90 percent.”
“Ninety percent?” the woman asks shockingly.
“What’s more serious is that the coronavirus has an incubation period of two to fourteen days,” the doctor continues.
“The virus was manipulated to attack the lungs directly within just five minutes of being exposed.”
While it might be pure coincidence, the similarity in detail is enough to scare people amid times of crisis. Twitter users are posting other clips of the show, where one character suggests another to stay at home and cancel all the plans.
The show is currently available for streaming on Netflix in the US and UK. It first aired on South Korea’s MBC between September and November 2018.
