Contagion movie and the Coronavirus mysteries
It is strange how familiar the movie Contagion is to the current Coronavirus disaster. How can someone predict the future almost 10 years before? A lot of puzzle in the mind.
Point of contention for various scientists is how deadly this COVID-19 really is because the fatality rate is different in countries. In the city of Wuhan, where the corona virus first exploded, 2 to 4 per cent of patients have died, according to World Health Organization (WHO). However, in other Chinese cities, the death rate was strikingly lower, 0.7 percent.
That’s now changing, with clusters of cases in countries like Japan, Italy and Iran, and the death toll outside of China is growing. There’s nothing different about the virus from one place to another.
Now people are turning to the 2011 movie Contagion for a glimpse of the future. The movie “Contagion” is directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Scott Z. Burns. It is very strange how familiar this movie is to the current disaster. How can someone predict the future almost 10 years before? Yes, it could be a coincidence but it creates a lot of questions and a lot puzzle in the mind.
