I think this Contagion was one of the most talked movies in Coronavirus Movies. The reason for this is that the subject of the movie is very similar to the coronavirus we are experiencing right now. The film is a 2011 American movie. The film’s cast includes many famous actors such as Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow. While healthcare professionals work to find a cure, people find themselves in the middle of a pandemic. The film tells of an epidemic that passed from animals to humans in Asia and then spread all over the world that is very similar to coronavirus. This virus passes through air and breathing and kills people within a few days. This movies is one of the most watched movie in Coronavirus Movies.
There are many similarities between Contagion and Coronavirus
- The name of the epidemic in the Contagion is MEV-1, in reality, it is Coronavirus.
- In the Contagion and in reality, the virus occurs in Asia, just like coronavirus.
- Both are first transmitted from an animal.
- Contagion and the coronavirus have certain symptoms in the early stages of the disease.
- Again, both of them are transmitted from person to person, and people who are unaware of the virus returning to their countries from abroad, infect the virus.
Since the movie and the current epidemic are very similar, many conspiracy theories have been introduced. But I think these similarities are the general features of such infectious diseases. It is one of the good movies in Covid-19 Movies.

If you haven’t watched Contagion, I wouldn’t suggest you read it here. The message given in the movie is also valid for the situation we are in now. Since we spoil the habitat of animals, that is nature, it is very normal to encounter such things. As long as we break the world, we will face many problems. This is the way the Earth gets what it wants from us. I think we can show the simplest example of this as the improvement of the air.
