I'm looking for the name of a short story I read about 20 years ago, I read this as a translation in a magazine, I sadly have no idea how it was originally published. In which the protagonist, a microbiologist or some other sort of lab worker is "prophesied" to drop a sample of pathogens, causing a wide spread epidemic.
Facing an inability to go against this foreknowledge, the scientist throws the pathogenic sample in frustration, as per the prophesy. In the world of the story certain and accurate knowledge of the future is possible. If memory serves this is construded as a "science fictional " rather than a fantastic element, but no "technobabble" is supplied, if I remember correctly.
