Things that "Contagion" movie got right
We finally went to see "Contagion" at the theater, and I thought that most people watching it might catch some good emergency-preparedness ideas.
Touching things spreads germs. Quit touching things. Or if you do, wash your hands before touching your face or food.
Having food inside your house is a good thing. The movie showed the riots in the stores, grocery stores running out of food, and the military running out of Meals-Ready-to-Eat.
It would be wise to have some basic medical skills, and some supplies such as masks and gloves. And to know how to keep the germs from your family members away from other family members.
Staying away from other people is important during a pandemic. The Matt Damon character isolated his daughter and himself for about a year.
