The Outbreak in "Contagion" can be a reality.
Last night my family and I, went to see the new movie “Contagion”. First of all I myself am a huge ‘germ-a-phobe’ maybe not to the extreme, but nevertheless I may or may not have like 10 bottles of hand sanitizer in my room, car, and maybe in my back pocket right now. Last night I had come across a CTV news story done by Pauline Chan about how experts say that an outbreak like the one demonstrated in “Contagion”.
Now if you have seen this movie, than you will definitely understand that it doesn’t take an expert to clarify that this can happen. The movie, itself definitely shows you how an outbreak like this can happen, and how fast it does. But this story made it essential to prove to Canadians, how much we do travel whether within Canada and internationally. As Canadians we love to travel. let’s just leave it at that.
The scarey thing that CTV’s Pauline noted was that this movie’s outbreak did not come from nowhere, it was based on an outbreak from Malaysia in the 1990’s. The expert they used in the news story claims that they directors and writers tried to make it seem as real as possible. And the expert was right, because they really opened the audience’s eyes, not to mention my own, of little things that we had absolutely no recollection of. For example, how many times we touch our face in a waking minute, or how many things and people we touch in the process. Gross.
Despite how common and popular this story is going to become in the next little while, using real experts to confirm this, may be a strong leap forward for Canadian hygiene and health.
Thank goodness for hand sanitizer.—>
