If you don’t want to watch the 2011 film “Contagion” right now, that’s certainly understandable. However, I watched it last night, and I found it to be more educational and encouraging than scary. Clearly a lot of research went into this film. I’m guessing that the screenwriters worked with experts in communicable diseases to work out the most probable ways in which a pandemic would develop and spread. Based on what we’ve all learned during the current pandemic, the film is eerily accurate.

“Contagion” reminds us just how predictable, and, eventually, inevitable this pandemic was. There really is no excuse for not having been prepared for it.

You can stream “Contagion” from several sources, typically at a rental cost of $3.99.

Update: New York Times: He wrote ‘Contagion.’ Here’s what he had to say about the response to the coronavirus.

    Thanks, Chenda. The new Star Wars is up next here. I never got around to seeing it in a theater, and it’s now rentable on Apple iTunes.
