It’s astounding how coronavirus/COVID-19 simulates the 2011 thriller-drama “Contagion.” The film’s epidemic turned pandemic, exhibits eerie portrayals of our government’s initial hyperventilating reaction as to the nature and origin of a highly contagious respiratory viral disease transmittable by both humans and fomites. The film further parallels U.S. mainstream media’s fiasco in that it downplayed the speed in which the virus had spread, as well as disseminated inaccurate information to the American public. The movie also contained CNN’s own Dr. Sanjay Gupta, casting the prominent medical journalist in TV footage from within the film. Not only has the coronavirus/COVID-19 been extraordinarily abrupt, and particularly disruptive for world economies, but its progression has drawn strong suspicion from the world’s public and government officials alike.
