It's a bit ironic, but I was about to post a prediction that Ebola would emerge as a possible pandemic in 2021 when I discovered the current Wuhan Coronavirus crisis in China was (and is) becoming a highly lethal pandemic. Originally the last vector for such a menace originating in Asia was 2013, but when I posted that one instead, out of Africa, came the Ebola Pandemic of 2014-16 ... arriving one year late. As that was a dream as well as a projection, I still feel I must post the possibility of that occurring again.
The basis of the original prediction for a 2013 pandemic, which I might have next posted again for this year, 2020, if not for the Ebola scare of 2014 seemingly changing the year to 2021, goes back quite some time ago in our world history.
The basis for a pandemic coming out of Asia in 2013 or 2020 was the Asian Flu of 1957-58.
So while we are on the subject, let us review the deadly pandemics of the 20th Century and 21st Century and their base 7 impacts, if any:
The 1918 influenza pandemic or Spanish flu
"10/14/08 -- A variation of the Avian Flu virus will become extremely volatile and infect large numbers of people in September 2009. It will be difficult to contain and will spread quickly from nation to nation, becoming the worst pandemic since 1918. 25 million shall perish and over 200 million entire in the world population will fall ill, many seriously, some suffering from various afflictions months after throwing off the virus. Pneumonia will be a common problem for those who get over this pestilence, and some of these will die as well. The virus will not be completely contained until 2011."
2009 flu pandemic or Swine Flu
The virus was first reported in two U.S. children in March 2009, but health officials have reported that it apparently infected people as early as January 2009 in Mexico. The outbreak was first detected in Mexico City on 18 March 2009; immediately after the outbreak was officially announced, Mexico notified the U.S. and World Health Organization, and within days of the outbreak Mexico City was "effectively shut down."
Asian Flu (1957–1958)
On January 30, 2012, I made the same prediction again for the year 2013:
"... If the prophecies of Anton Johansson and Nostradamus have any bite remaining in them, there should be a killer virus that spreads quickly from nation to nation just prior to World War III breaking out in Europe. It will come from out of Asia in February 2013 and reach pandemic levels by June 2013. Johansson claims this plague will kill 25 million people and infect at least 200 million of the world's population. He also predicts that this disease may be a biological weapon.
Likewise, Nostradamus indicates a biological attack from outer space, from the mysterious satellite called Samarobryn.
Could Samarobryn be a military satellite containing biological wafare agents designed by China or Russia to rain its contents on Northern Europe, Canada and the United States? If so, it may be programmed to fulfill its mission in February 2013 ... Many of those infected will suffer from various other afflictions months after throwing off the virus, a deadly bacteria-resistant pneumonia being most prevalent among these. The virus will not be completely contained until March 2014.
Again, I must warn that this plague may occur naturally in the environment as the Swine Flu purportedly did in 2009. But it is also possible this may be caused by biological terrorism or bio-warfare."
My comments: "In February 2014, exactly one year after the time projected, February 2013, the most serious, horrific, and deadly epidemic and potential pandemic since the Black Death lay waste to Europe in 14th Century began appearing in the West African nation of Guinea, quickly spreading to Liberia and Sierra Leone in March. Since then "isolated" cases of the hemorrhagic disease Ebola have popped up in the United States, Spain, France, the UK, and other parts of Europe. Travel restrictions have been put into place. Quarantines have been enforced on entire towns and cities, including the town of Purdon in the US state of Texas near Dallas.
Although, thus far, Ebola has not been declared a pandemic by WHO, the CDC has declared the disease an international health emergency and placed it at highest alert status. If the deadly virus is not contained, the CDC projected that 1.4 million people may become infected by it by January 2015. The death toll at this time is 5,160."
Western African Ebola virus epidemic
Small outbreaks occurred in Nigeria and Mali, and isolated cases were recorded in Senegal, the United Kingdom and Italy. In addition, imported cases led to secondary infection of medical workers in the United States and Spain but did not spread further. The number of cases peaked in October 2014 and then began to decline gradually, following the commitment of substantial international resources. As of 8 May 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) and respective governments reported a total of 28,646 suspected cases and 11,323 deaths (39.5%), though the WHO believes that this substantially understates the magnitude of the outbreak.
On 8 August 2014, a Public Health Emergency of International Concern was declared and on 29 March 2016, the WHO terminated the Public Health Emergency of International Concern status of the outbreak. Subsequent flare-ups occurred; the last was declared over on 9 June 2016, 42 days after the last case tested negative on 28 April 2016 in Monrovia.
The 2013–2016 outbreak, caused by Ebola virus (EBOV) was the first anywhere in the world to reach epidemic proportions.
Thus, out of an Asian Flu precedent, emerged instead an African epidemic.
Hong Kong Flu (1968–1969)
The reports of that year revolved around the SARS Pandemic. While I initially followed news of SARS, I gave up on featuring it, took down the observation material, and just posted the news links. Still, it should have been considered by me to be a partially successful prediction.
SARS: Severe acute respiratory syndrome
2019–20 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak
As of 24 January 2020, 26 deaths have occurred, all in China, and there is evidence of human-to-human transmission. Extensive testing has revealed over 800 confirmed cases in China, some of whom are healthcare workers. Confirmed cases have also been reported in Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, the United States, Singapore, Vietnam and Nepal.
In any event, regardless of its SARS-like characteristics, The Wuhan Coronavirus IS clearly a REPEAT OF THE ASIAN FLU OF 1957-58.
This should have been solidly posted on the 2020 Predictions page. But I was too late to take notice of this emerging event. Instead I was about to post a repeat of Ebola for 2021 when this outbreak captured my attention ... and then realized that it was aligned to 1957. This is the first actual repeat of Asian Flu although it may become infinitely worse than that disease ever was.
As I have mentioned in my Twitter messages, this could be the disease the prophet Anton Johansson predicted would kill 25 million people worldwide prior to the start of World War III. Even it isn't, it could be the worst thing to happen since 1918.
According to health experts Wuhan coronavirus could kill as many as 65 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE, 40 million more than Johansson's projected figure.
Suddenly the silence was shattered by the screaming of sirens. The sirens seemed to scream, "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!" Never before had I heard such shrill, screaming sirens. They seemed to be everywhere - to the North, South, the East and the West. There seemed to be multitudes of sirens. And as I looked, I saw people everywhere running. But it seemed none of them ran more than a few paces, and then they fell.
I now saw millions of people falling in the streets, on the sidewalks, struggling. I heard their screams for mercy and help. I heard their horrible coughing as though their lungs had been seared with fire. I heard the moanings and groanings of the doomed and the dying.
And now you have the most important background on the worst outbreaks and pandemics of the last 100 years: Spanish Flu (1918) repeated in the form of Swine Flu (2009-10), Asian Flu (1957-58) repeated in the form of Wuhan Coronavirus or Novel Coronavirus (2019-20), Hong Kong Flu (1968-69) repeated in the form of SARS (2003) and Ebola (2014-16), yet to repeat.
