THE STAND-Level Coronavirus Catastrophe Debunked By Stephen King

We're sure many, many, many, many, many people around the world are either dealing with a new kind of respiratory infection called CORONAVIRUS (why did they have to name it after a beer?) or cooped up in a house with nothing to do, due to the epic pandemic. And from a certain standpoint, it can be quite scary.

Stephen King, However, Has Urged Us All to KEEP CALM

You can imagine many are taking it as more than a coincidence that it just so happens his iconic novel's new CBS series adaptation will see filming completed by the end of 2020. It just so happens that THE STAND is also about a viral outbreak, utterly destroying 99% of the population.

But can we expect the Coronavirus to accomplish that same feat? King renounces the idea on Twitter:
 "No, coronavirus is NOT like THE STAND. It's not anywhere near as serious. It's eminently survivable. Keep calm and take all reasonable precautions."
Coming from the master of horror himself, that's reassuring. You'd think he'd be all doom and gloom with how he constantly lives and breathes his stories, but this is simply not the case. He's a realist. And we're sure the cast of the newest limited series adaptation of his book would also agree: Cyclops himself (James Marsden), Stu Redman, freaking Mera sans Aquaman, WHOOPI GOLDBERG (??), Greg Kinnear and.... Marilyn Manson (that's an inspiring choice). Just to name a few.

For Those Who Aren't Familiar With THE STAND, Here's a Rundown as Listed on Amazon:

"This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides -- or are chosen. A world in which good rises on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abigail -- and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man."
