Did "Little House On The Prairie" Predict COVID In The 70s? – Jewel 107.7 Hawkesbury/Lachute

Did “Little House On The Prairie” Predict COVID In The 70s?

The TV show ”Little House on the Prairie” predicted the coronavirus with a 1977 episode called “Quarantine.” One fan tweeted that the show dealt with an outbreak of Mountain Fever. ‘There’s an episode of little house on the prairie on @TG4TV and it seems pretty accurate. ‘They’re going mad locked in the house, the kids are arguing about who gets to write on the (slate) tablet, and they’re washing down the house. #Quarantine #Covid_19.’

Another fan tweeted, ‘Watching ‘Little House on the Prairie’. Typhus is killing the residents of Walnut Grove. Doc Baker tells Charles Ingalls he’s been exposed and to not go near the girls. This episode is too much. And I’ve been watching this to get away from COVID stuff.’
