.....the Black death.....Ebola......The Andromeda Strain....."Corn Squeezin's"!....... hemorrhagic flu like gooshies in general....all would be my guess.

COVID19 isn't anything like any of those of things or Capt. Trips.

He also wrote a story back in 1977 called Night Surf - have you read it? In it there seems to have been a flu pandemic that came from Asia.
