Earlier in the month, APOCALYPTICA's Eicca Toppinen told Tuonela about the pandemic: "I think this coronavirus, it's been all the time a matter of time. We have had Ebola, we have had SARS, we have had all these kinds of diseases growing up. I'm not a specialist, so I don't know which things are a result of human actions, but most likely we have affected the ecosystem so much that I think it's just a matter of time that nature creates viruses and bacteria that will kill a lot of people.
"We are living in crazy times," he continued. "We've been always living in crazy times. It would be wrong to say that now it's so much more terrible than it was. The past times were even more brutal and more terrible in many ways, but still, with all the knowledge we have now, we should be able to put our act together better and make really actions that we know that are necessary to keep things going in the right path."
