An excerpt from bestselling author Dean Koontz’s suspense thriller “The Eyes of Darkness” which got released in 1981 is now revolving around Social Media.

The excerpt tells of a Chinese military lab that creates a virus as part of its biological weapons programme.

In chapter 39 of his book, Koontz writes that the lab is located in Wuhan, which lends the virus its name, Wuhan-400.

The excerpt was shared by Congress leader Manish Tewari on his Twitter page.

“Is Coranavirus a biological Weapon developed by the Chinese called Wuhan -400? This book was published in 1981. Do read the excerpt,” Congress leader Manish Tewari tweeted.

Tewari highlighted a paragraph that read: “They call the stuff ‘Wuhan-400’ because it was developed at their RDNA labs outside of the city of Wuhan, and it was the four-hundredth viable strain of man-made micro-organisms created at that centre.”

More than 1500 people have died due to the disease.
