Chinese children’s book ‘Three Thousand Years of Anti-pandemic’ attracted attention 

Recently, a children’s book has attracted the public’s attention with ancient stories of epidemic prevention illustrated with modern COVID test images.

“Three Thousand Years of Anti-pandemic” was published by Nanjing University Press. The book records the classic story of the Chinese people encountering the plague, preventing and fighting the plague during the three thousand years from the first Qin Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty.

Although the content does not mention the COVID pandemic, the image reminds people of nucleic acid testing.

According to Xin Tang Ren, some netizens point out that the man in the picture on the cover book comes from ancient times. His costume is from the Ming Dynasty but he is holding a cotton swab to take a sample. This image isn’t different from the anti-epidemic staff performing nucleic acid testing today.

This has led many netizens to joke that this book is a prophecy for the future generation. Currently, it has only been 3 years since the COVID pandemic outbreak, so there are still 2997 years left (Qin to Qing dynasty).
