Contagion

contagion

Contagion is a 2011 film directed by Steven Soderbergh, starring Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburbe, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow. The film mirrors the present day corona virus to almost perfection, the same sources – from Hongkong from bats with pig – their excreta, contact through hand, transmission through spittle, spreads rapidly, needs social distancing, constant hand washing, no cure at the moment. All the battle is the same, it is highly contagious disease, some controversy about WHO sidelining the cure to benefit pharma companies et al. Lot of drama in the movie, but the fact that the current crisis is a replica of what happened in the movie is highly surreal.
