    Since the outbreak of the respiratory illness that has infected more than 100,000 people across the world, there have been a lot of reports saying the disease was predicted by clairvoyants and prophecies. One rabbi even found a warning against the coronavirus in the Torah.

    Kim Kardashian has angered her multi-million army of followers on Twitter after posting a prophecy about the coronavirus. The 39-year-old star of the TV series Keeping Up With the Kardashians posted a screen of a book by late psychic Sylvia Browne, who predicted that a severe pneumonia-like disease would spread across the world in 2020.

    ​Netizens’ reaction was not long in coming…

    ​While some social media users received the news with anxiety.

    ​Others were livid that the star of a television series, who has more than 220 million followers on her social media accounts, is spreading misinformation.

    ​Some netizens noted that Sylvia Browne, a self-described medium and psychic, made false predictions and was even indicted on fraud charges and that the same prediction was made by writer Dean Koontz in 1981.

    ​Other users hoped that this time Sylvia Browne would be right and the virus will “vanish quickly as it arrived”

    ​Still others joked asking Kardashian to add them to a group chat.

    ​More than 1,000 people have contracted COVID-19 in the United States. President Donald Trump has announced the suspension of travel from 26 European countries in a bid to combat the spread of the infectious disease, which to date has infected more than 100,000 people across the world. The global death toll now stands at more than 4,000.
