There exist some forms of experimental medicine that use parasitic worms as treatment.

"Helminthic therapy, an experimental type of immunotherapy, is the treatment of autoimmune diseases and immune disorders by means of deliberate infestation with a helminth or with the eggs of a helminth. "

See also hirudotherapy; blood sucking leeches used in therapy.

Kind of medieval and even older - apparently used as early as 200 B.C. - but has made a comeback

Did Asterix comics predict the Coronavirus outbreak - Wikipedia:

"The book received renewed media attention in 2020 amid the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (COVID-19) pandemic because the charioteer favored to win the race goes by the name Coronavirus.[3]"
