The first season of the series ended with a doctor developing what seems very uncannily like the Coronavirus. She was looking for a cure, but discovers a virus that is compared to MERS. The doctor can be seen saying that someone tweaked to increase its mortality rate to 90 percent and adds that the virus has an incubation period of two to 14 days.

“The virus was manipulated to attack the lungs directly within just five minutes of being exposed,” the doctor adds. It is later shown in My Secret Terrius that a cure is just not possible, prompting children to be taught how to wash their hands effectively to destroy the virus.

The scene went viral on social media, with one user writing, “Omg they discussed the corona virus in 2018.” “Just gonna leave this here but i am massively spooked,”wrote another.

“This series My Secret Terrius is on netflix but came out 2 years ago and talks about the coronavirus we're going through right now,” posted a third user.

One social media user was certain that it “will send a shiver down your spine."

Here's how netizen's reacted:

The coronavirus pandemic has affected over 4,80,000 people globally and killed over 21,000, prompting countries around the world to go into lockdown to stop the spread of the disease
