It is said a person touches their face over a 1,000 times a day.
Add in how many times said person touches door knobs, tables, sneezes or coughs and the potential for spreading germs should be self-evident.
This is the idea behind the movie “Contagion.”
“Contagion” is a drama, thriller movie staring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne and Jude Law. The plot is, essentially, people around the globe becoming sick from a contagious disease.
The movie does, however, delve deeper into the roles of the characters and shows the types of situations that would arise.
For example, Laurence Fishburne’s character is a member of the Center of Drug Control and is put into a situation where he is not suppose to tell anyone about the disease yet, but he wants to warn his wife.
Matt Damon’s wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, is at the epicenter of the plot after going on a trip toChina, the presumed origin of the disease.
