The so-called blind mystic Baba Vanga predicted the coronavirus outbreak in 1996, it has been claimed.
Bulgarian born Baba supposedly foresaw 9/11 and Brexit – along with the current pandemic, one of her followers has said.
A woman who met the "Balkan Nostradamus" says the then elderly woman warned her “the corona will be all over us”.
Neshka Stefanova Robeva, 73, who coached several Bulgarian rhythmic gymnasts to become World champions, says Vanga predicted the coronavirus when she visited her, just before she died aged 84.
Robeva posted to social media, writing: “This virus came to us, too."

She added: "Aunt Vanga predicted when I visited her years ago: ‘Neshka, the Corona will be all over us.’ I did not realise what those words meant then."
"Corona" is the Bulgarian word for guardianship and is associated with Russian leadership in the country.
Robeva added she thought it meant the country would be "under Russian guardianship. Only now did I realise that it was Chinese flu. May it go away easily."
The clairvoyant reportedly predicted a dark 2020, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin would be killed in an assassination from inside the Kremlin and U.S. President Donald Trump would suffer a brain tumour leaving him deaf or dead.

Vanga was the subject of a 2011 documentary called ‘The Visible and Invisible World’ in which it is claimed she had predicted Boris Yeltsin’s second electoral victory in 1995 and warned him about his heart condition.
The mystic’s followers claim she had an 85% success rate with her predictions.
However, many of her predictions, which run until 5079, have turned out to be false – such as America’s 44th president (Barack Obama) being their last president.

Vanga predicted "horror" for the US, warning in 1989 that "the American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds," with many interpreting these birds as a reference to the jets used in the 9/11 terror attacks.
On the other hand, followers of Nostradamus' predictions claim the famed apothecary and writer also saw the virus coming when he wrote "the land stained with blood, and diverse plagues will be upon mankind" in 1555.
