Some critic reviews of the movie is as follows;
“Contagion,” Steven Soderbergh’s smart, spooky thriller about contemporary plagues, is a paranoid freakout for the antigovernment, Tea Party age.
With a stellar cast, a gripping pace, and a subject matter as hard to shake as the virus that spreads through its story, “Contagion” is a winner.

Stephen King did the deadly virus-meets-the-supernatural thing with The Stand. Steven Soderbergh matches it up with something even scarier: cold, hard, medical reality.

A starkly effective ensemble drama which could well do for the sniffles what Jaws did for great whites.

It is worthy of note that board and video games on virus apocalypse are the new obsession. Games in which players are pathogens out to destroy humanity or healthcare workers battling an outbreak, are all the rage during the coronavirus lockdown.
