@Vincent M. hey bro......zombies exist....just not hoe you imagine......theres the cordyceps fungus that infects insect etc have a look into that.also look into the jewel wasp aka the parasitic wasp.there are other species of creature who can do this but these are the most well known.just remeber it doesnt take much for an animal virus to evolve and infect something else

decontamination is for the Alien I think, They don't want him to get infected with some human disease. 10:36

Hey, the thing isn't really an infection.. more like a complex colony of single celled organisms capable of making survival decisions. And you could decontaminate if you were going into a sterile isolated environment, as well as reenetering a non quarantined area.

Hollywood seems to have one rule where real science is concerned: 'if it slows, it goes'. Complexity and accuracy are sacrificed to maintain pace again and again.

I've always wondered if everyone at the CDC plays Plague inc, or at least would get a giggle out of it.

A guy like him wouldnt be able to tell you anything about the t virus since it is a pretty shadowy orginsaion that enginered it and he would not be in the know.

In the girl with all the gifts it is not a virus it is a fungus.

The reason he stands on the edge of the building in dayz is because he might turn into a rabid infected in seconds after being exposed to the pathogen so he does it to protect his family so i see nothing that wouldnt happen irl there.

Hey you guys should either have him or a scientist and a disease expert break down etc vampire diaries and true and other vampire shows and movies to get their opinion on it and if they could ever exist.

Every time a new scene was introduced, I was wondering "When is 'The Andromeda Strain' going to be introduced", and when I hit 13:10 I was happy, especially that it was the original one.

i enjoyed the facts of this video and how things are done procedurally...there are a lot of things that are not possible, but maybe we're being lulled into a false sense of security. based on what we know so far, and based on what we've encountered so far, we know these are the facts. unfortunately, we haven't encountered every single organism in the whole universe, or even just this planet alone, for that matter, so we can't know for certain. that's what makes scifi so interesting, because it raises what-ifs all the time.

I completely disagree sir! That Capuchin could have been there with Ace, but got lost and ended up in this other movie. Which is why he wasnt with Ace when he was trying to save the great white bat.... oh and Shiiiikaka!
I would imagine this guy saying "gaze upon the fist of the CDC".

I came here FOR Contagion and I am so glad it's 100% approved and accurate 😌😌😌

Maybe there is something wrong with me but i was most disturbed by the fact that he stated they dont have the authority to force a person into isolation i would think if they found a person walking around with ebola or bubonic plague they just wouldnt let them walk around and infect the population

I always thought the blood shot up in The Thing because it was part of the actual monster itself, not necessarily because it was a pathogen. Though I've always been under the impression that The Thing was an actual monster in itself instead of a virus.

Ok so I am in NO WAY saying I'm smarter than this expert, I'm just very curious as to why he said you wouldn't get decontaminated before entering an area with new organic material. Wouldn't you want to make yourself clean so you don't bring anything in that could hurt (in this case) an alien?

ET decontamination going in. Pretty normal dealing with space stuff. Just as you don't want evil bugs killing humans, you don't want human bugs killing aliens, or rather Earth based stuff contaminating space stuff. Though it's a bit after the horse has bolted in ET as he's been wandering around riding bicycles through the sky.

"To have a reaction like that though, where the blood jumps out of the petri dish and runs away - I mean it's cool, but this is pure sci-fi". Good to know XD

Informative. Thanks. Although here... 14:10 Surely if the situation is catastrophic and deadly enough, with a very rapid infection rate, there would be no choice but to quickly force infected people (who resist) into quarantine, even violently , for the sake of the rest of society, no matter how brutish it may seem. I think he`s playing down just how ruthless you`d have to be to contain a serious contagion.
