The Wuhan-400 come from Dean Koontz's book, while the '2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe' from other book by Sylvia Browne.

“The Eyes of Darkness” is a science fiction novel published in 1981. It references a fictional “biological weapon” called “Wuhan-400” that was designed to kill people but inadvertently gives one child psychic abilities.

The fictional “Wuhan-400” and Covid-19 have little in common, bar that they both have some association with the Chinese city of Wuhan. The book says of “Wuhan-400” that “Once infected, no one lives more than twenty-four hours” and that its “kill-rate is one hundred percent”, something that is not true of Covid-19, which probably has a fatality rate of around 2%.

The part “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments." come from different book titled “End of Days: Predictions and prophecies about the end of the world” co-written by Sylvia Browne, and published in 2008
Robert My 2 cents:
a). if Koontz knew about this event would happen in 2020, if he knew it would've started in Wuhan and spread from there, if he knew there would be no known treatment, if he knew that it woyuld've spread so fast and be as deadly as it seems, etc. etc. etc., THEN WHY THE RUDDY HELL DIDN'T HE REVEAL all of this mess to the authorities ??? Don't give me "no-one would've believed him" for an answer, nor "he wasn't sure about the truth", because itr won't work with me. I'm no yesman or layman...I won't buy it.

b). We all live in the digital age and internet age; there are many sources out there which state that the virus WAS indeed created in a lab, but this lab was in a country where the military together with the govt were secretly creating this weapon in an effort to carry on with the right wing Nazi / Fascis agenda sparked by Hitler to exterminate populations and put the blame on another non-aligned country.
As usual, the REAL TRUTH is somewhere in the middle and doctored to promote certain political ideals in favour of others.
Tess Tan Yes, it says "It was around then that a Chinese scientist name Li Chen defected to the United States, carrying a diskette record of China's most important and dangerous new biological weapon in a decade. They cal 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 microorganism created at that research center. Wuhan-400 is a perfect weapon. It afflicts only human beings.
On the other page it says " In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.
Akosita Sadole Fishy. The WHO should come out of their office and go to China for more investigations.
SANDRA DE OYAGÜE COLLADOS No, en la versión que he leido en castellano, editada en 1992 por Círculo de Lectores. Aparecen unas instalaciones secretas en Nevada, EEUU, al final de la novela, donde hacen experimentos y están probando un virus creado por un ruso, muy parecido a lo que se dice del corona virus, que fue creado por un ruso que desertó a Estados Unidos, y el virus se llama Gorki 400. No se menciona a China para nada. Por cierto el científico se llama Ilía Paparopov. Y esto es más creible porque el libro se publicó por primera vez en 1981, en la época de Regan, si no me equivoco y los rusos eran el gran enemigo.
