“Contagion,” the film about a new virus that sweeps over the world infecting and killing people in just days, has attracted the attention of both moviegoers (number 1 and 2 in box office sales the first two weeks of release) and the CDC and its infectious disease experts, who are the heroes of the film. The CDC’s website devotes a number of pages to responding to “Contagion,” distilling fact from fiction in the film, and even providing Twitter chat opportunities to connect with the type of CDC experts portrayed in the film.

Does the “Contagion” Hollywood buzz help or hinder the role of healthcare workers in responding to a future pandemic threat?

Take our OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.
