“In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments. 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”. 

Browne did write in her end of days book that the world will suffer from the illness in 2020 and in 2030. Well, the world facing a tragic problem after the coronavirus outbreak in 2020. So will coronavirus be vanishing as soon as possible as per Sylvia?

Is Sylvia Browne Prediction a Hoax?

Where will it go, according to Sylvia Browne? As per Browne it indeed spread throughout the world attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes.

One news writer asked, “Doesn’t it sound very similar to this novel coronavirus and the disease, Covid-19? Be it the nature of the illness, the year mentioned or the part about the resistance to treatments—the similarity with coronavirus is uncanny… Netizens are absolutely stumped with the reference of the coronavirus outbreak in the book.”

However, at the End of Days book, she has never maintained the name of the COVID-19, Coronavirus. As per her statement which does not relate today condition, she mentioned that the illness will vanish as quickly as it arrives. However, her statement turns out to be false at the point. Matter of fact, Coronavirus has not vanished until now and continues to grow in large numbers.

On the other hand, interestingly, she also predicted the emergence in 2010, of a bacterial infection resembling the ‘ flesh-eating disease. The illness was expected to be ‘ highly infectious illness ‘ according to her prediction. One may recall that about 575,000 people worldwide were killed by the deadly outbreak of the swine flu pandemic in 2009-19.


Matter of fact, it might be a lucky guess but some people claim to predict the future. Hence the end of days book was written when there was an outbreak of SARS in China. Well, she stated the problem and effect of illness on her end of days book which is happening right now as of 2020. As per End of Days, her prediction will be appropriate if the only coronavirus disappears soon and comes again in 2030.
