For instance if we see the Homeland security and CDC are unable to declare the disease first where their policy was that no one knows until everyone knows about the disease. In consequence the people knew about the disease from some unreliable sources such as the “Truth Serum Now”. If the disease has been announced by the government authorities earlier the people might not have created havoc and must have known about the disease from a reliable source and must get rid of the infected drug “Forsythia” which was exhibit by the blogger to gain money. In addition to this there is also another weak spot identified in the movie where the health official works in addressing an international emergency. In this movie there is only one senior CDC officer, one field officer and two scientist who took all the responsibility to respond the deadly MEV-1, Where as in a real life pandemic the CDC might have interacted with some other federal agencies, local, state and other agencies.

Movies and dramas are some of the artistic innovations of the human beings. They remind us of the traditional beliefs, customs and the way of life. TV dramas, for instance, are one way of teaching people about their past using an entertaining approach where characters take different roles symbolically to pass a message to the audience. Movies however, make scenes vivid and emotional as they bring a clear picture of what happened using moving images. That said, movies make it easy for one to remember, especially on parts that they find interesting or scarring.
The plague raged throughout Europe from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century evoking various responses from the people who experienced its terror. It affected all regions of Europe, killing one-third of the population.

Examples when people will panic comes from the movie “Contagion” The first example I have is when they had to Isolate the City, Chicago this means that people cannot leave the city or enter the city. The panic that shows is that people are getting mad at the military and honking their car horns.

They would also break into homes that have been abandoned in search for food or supplies,This example shows fear by saying that people are frightened that they might run out of supplies to live.

President Barack Obama presents statistics, saying “the United States is home to 5% of the world’s population but is home to 25% of the world’s prisoners.” Also the film uses a hyperbole in talking about the movie Birth of a Nation produced in 1915 which portrays a black man as a violent savage who will kill white women.

The characters in the film are hidden behind metal and glass where no one in LA even touches or brushes past you.
