Did Dean Koonts predict Covid-19?

Dean Koontz 1981 novel “Eyes of Darkness” tells of a virus called “Wuhan-400”. Does it act exactly as covid-19? No, but….

Predictions are never 100%.

The naysayers point to what is different rather than focus on the fact that the similarities are way to “similar” rather than whats different being not really that different. Examples? Mortality rate, incubation, man-made. These are not really important. Maybe he did predict it? Maybe he may dream up a cure? Maybe this doesn’t matter? Interesting nonetheless!
