American writer Stephen King plans to write a novel about the coronavirus pandemic. He stated this on the air of the talk show The View with Whoopi Goldberg.
"I want to write a book specifically about the coronavirus. I want to take the events of 2020 and see how they show themselves as a novel. It will be complicate," King said.
He also said that the coronavirus pandemic has influenced the content of his new detective novel "Billy Summers", which was released this week. The writer noted that for more credibility, he had to postpone the events of the book from 2020 to 2019. According to the plot, the heroes go on a cruise, but in real life in 2020 they would not be able to do this due to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.
More than 200 million people have been infected with the coronavirus in the world since the beginning of the pandemic. The first place is still the United States, where 35 330 873 citizens of the country fell ill with Covid-19.
