Millions of people died in various epidemics such as plague, cholera, yellow fever, HIV / AIDS, Spanish Flu, Sars, and Ebola throughout history. The number of people infected with COVID-19, which started in Wuhan, China in December 2019, has now exceeded 3 million and more than 200 thousand people have died. This epidemic still continues to threaten the whole world. While epidemics change the fate of thousands of families, they also lead to economic, sociological, and psychological destruction in societies. They also deeply affect some branches of art, especially cinema and literature. Today, the media also gives a place to the news that novels about Corona started to be written as well. Some of these novels take place in literary history as works of dystopia. I suppose the main reason why the authors prefer writing dystopic novels is that this genre gives more opportunities to freely use the imaginations.
