YouTuber Daniel Keem, aka Keemstar, aka DramaAlert has suggested – not for the first time – that he's actually a psychic genius.
When old tweets resurface for influencers (especially ones this problematic), it's not usually good news. But Keem's latest tweet aims to actually highlight a tweet from 2013, in which he says that "corona virus" is the "new back plague".
People are pretty sceptical and Keem hasn't responded to any of the replies which are questioning the legitimacy of the tweet and asking him to elaborate on how on earth he predicted the pandemic seven years ago.

While others suggested the comparison was a little overstated.
Whether real or not, there are in fact lots of reasons why someone may have had the impetus to tweet something along these lines based in 2013, given the MERS outbreak of 2012 was heavily reported, and MERS is another type of coronavirus.
@TheCondomFish @KEEMSTAR Well he tweeted this after MERS popped up. And MERS is a coronavirus too.
