Marge in Chains
In the episode, “Marge in Chains” – workers at a Japanese juice box factory sneeze on the product before it is distributed to those international. The Springfield was infected by a disease called “Osaka flu”, which the fans claim to be the real-life version of a coronavirus.
The Corona Virus outbreak is centred in China’s Hubei province after a new coronavirus. It is named as 2019-nCoV by the scientists. It began to spread last December. As of now, 14,550 cases of this coronavirus have been confirmed as have 305 deaths.
