I am an X generation. The COVID-19 pandemic has probably become the single most pivotal event impacting this X generation in this world. The second most important event was probably the 9-11 terror. It has been nearly 15 months since the COVID-19 pandemic started to break out world-wide. Millions of lives have been lost. In the midst of all this damage, millions of people are getting vaccinated. Despite much knowledge gained about this virus, the future remains unknown.

In this insight, I go through the details of a scenario analysis conducted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in 2017 called The SPARS Pandemic (2025-2028). Remember, this was a futuristic fictional scenario about a potential coronavirus that sweeps across the world sometime in the future (2025-2028). This document has been publicly available in the past three and half years. Recently, it has received more attention since some of the events and timeline that are included in this document are so eerily similar to the COVID-19 pandemic.
