“Corona is an anagram of racoon” (raccoon, as in Resident Evil’s Raccoon City)

"Racoon” ("raccoon" with only one “C") is an anagram of “Corona” (as in “Coronavirus"). In the Japanese horror media franchise Resident Evil, there are outbreaks of zombies and other monsters created mainly by the Umbrella Corporation, located in Raccoon City. The Coronavirus was said by many to have started in a lab in Wuhan, China, under the name “Bao Hu San,” which means “umbrella.” The logos of the Umbrella Corporation and “Bao Hu San” are identical, except for a different color. [Full Fact and Lupa have stated that Shanghai Ruilan Bao Hu San Biotech Limited is based in Shanghai, not Wuhan.]

“Remember Racoon city from resident evil? Corona virus is an anagram for Racoon virus” was posted on Twitter by Flavius Constantinus on January 26, 2020. “Is it weird that Corona is an anagram for Racoon...as in Racoon City...” was posted on Twitter by Citizen_Hells on January 28, 2020.

“Raccoon Official Animal of the Coronavirus Pandemic Wears a mask Washes hands” was posted on an image on Twitter by Robin Groch on April 30, 2020. “The official mascot of 2020. Washes his hands insensately. Always wears a mask. Rearrange the letters in Racoon it spells CORONA!” was posted on an image on Twitter by Michael Munger on May 3, 2020.

Story
The main storyline of the games primarily concerns a group of individuals who battle against the Umbrella Corporation as well as characters in relation to them who have developed the T-virus which, among other things, can transform humans into zombies as well as mutate other creatures into horrifying monsters.

The Arklay Mountain and Raccoon City incidents
The plot lines of the main installments up to the third game all concern the T-virus outbreak in the Arklay Mountains and its spread to nearby Raccoon City.

More spooky:
Corona is an anagram for racoon, but also Corona virus is an anagram for carnivorous. Also there’s that Shanghai biochem lab with the umbrella logo and umbrella in the name.

Wait, so there’s a biological research lab with the exact same logo as the Umbrella Corporation right in the city where the #coronarvirus originated under the name “ Bao Hu san “ which means Umbrella, AND corona is an anagram for racoon.
IS THIS A REMASTRED VERSION OF R.E ?

Mind is blown:
In Resident Evil, you’ve got the umbrella corporation (pharmaceutical bio tech company) and in Shanghai you’ve got a similar company with the same logo with different colours.
Now this is crazy on its own, BUT…
RACOON virus / CORONA virus. = anagram. Tired faceSmiling face with open mouth and cold sweatExploding head

Pretty ironic that the wu bio lab has the EXACT same logo as Umbrella Corp from Resident Evil. Even more ironic that raccoon spells corona.

Whoa, it’s true. Racoon is an anagram of Corona. Always wears a mask, even before it was mandatory. They have been PREPARING, people.
We will soon be forced to worship our racoon overlords. And none of you saw it coming. That’s how we know it was a good plan.

If this virus were to have mascot, it would be a raccoon. They are always washing their hands constantly, always wearing a mask, and if you rearrange the name it spells Corona!
