Contagion Fact or Fiction?

Warner Brothers recently released the movie Contagion, a fictional drama that portrays CDC and other U.S. and international partners responding to an emerging infectious disease outbreak. The film is riveting and takes viewers through the emergence of a new virus to a full-blown pandemic.
