Some amazing similarities between the scene and the current COVID-19 scenario
It is astounding to see many similarities between web series and corona situation right now.
- “MARS, SARS, common flu, they all fall in the same family with the same gene formation”.
- “The virus attacks the respiratory system”. It is probably this line that has made netizens mad. COVID-19 is also a flu-like disease that causes respiratory illness. It fosters mucus formation because of which, people suffering from the disease are unable to breathe.
- “It is a mutant virus. Someone has tweaked it to increase the mortality up to 90% “
- “The virus was manipulated to attack the lungs with just 5 minutes of being exposed”
Please note that this show is not available in India. However, if you search #mysecretterrius in twitter, you would many videos.
Another movie named Contagion directed by Steven Soderbergh also had a similar theme.
