Coronavirus has ravaged countries around the world, forcing people indoors to mitigate the spread and drastically altering their ways of life. But according to one TikTok user, the light at the end of the tunnel is near. 

British pop singer and self-proclaimed psychic Chiara King (@chiarakingmusic) shared her rosy forecast for the trajectory of the coronavirus in the coming months. Over the entrancing beat to Maribou State’s “Tongue,” King laid out three simple steps that will usher a return to our old way of life by summer:  “There will be a vaccine found during April. Lockdowns will be lifted in May. Life will be back to normal in June.”

You heard it here, folks: Coronavirus is canceled.

King is no slouch on TikTok. Many of her videos—which often involve her dancing/lip-syncing to rap and pop songs or joking about her love life—have earned hundreds of thousands of views. Her coronavirus video, however, vaulted to a whole new level, earning a staggering 17.8 million views. Apparently, favorable coronavirus predictions transcend established fandoms.

Honestly, I can’t tell if King’s video is supposed to be sincere or satirical. None of her predictions have come true yet, but hey, there are still two weeks left in April—plenty of time for scientists to make a Hail Mary and whip up a vaccine. King even pokes fun at the futility of politicians and doctors feuding over who knows more about the coronavirus in a separate TikTok.

Here’s hoping her psychic powers are finely tuned and Miss Rona is on her way out by summer.
