While everyone is talking about COVID-19 lately, seems like The Simpsons talked about it 27 years ago.

A number of pictures from old episodes of animated show have been circulating on the Internet suggesting that The Simpsons predicted the outbreak of the virus over two decades in advance.

Coronavirus has taken over the world and the Internet alike.

Films are being delayed, stars are skipping multi-city tours, large gathering avoided and cancellations of important government and sports events– coronavirus scare is showing its effects.

The stills are believed to take from a 1993 episode, where there is an illness creating chaos.

Homer and Principal Skinner are seen infected with spreading germs over Springfield.

One of the pics also shows the news anchor with the words “corona virus” written in the backdrop.

Harry Potter actor, Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the franchise seem to believe it.

The actor shared the pictures on his Instagram account.

Twitter users also convinced about the prediction.

While, the makers of The Simpsons are yet to give a confirmation about the same, some fans are arguing that the pictures are fake.

They claim them to altered explaining that the original show had “housecat flu” instead of coronavirus.

Well, if this turns out to be true, this will not be the first time that Simpsons predicted the future.

Before this, an episode from Season 11 referring Trump as “President Trump” created quite a noise after last US elections.

Also, fans had pointed to an episode from Season 10 listing 20th Century Fox as a “division of Walt Disney Co.” when Disney announced the purchase of Fox recently.
