Aerosolized droplets & Fomites

with one comment

I saw “Contagion” tonight — a near-apocalyptic thriller by Steven Soderbergh about a viral pandemic. It kinda freaked me out. Jude Law’s character (the paranoid blogger) was annoying, but I liked the rest of the cast. The film highlighted what happens when Society breaks down: looting, loss of basic supplies (food, medicine, gasoline), quarantines, military police states, rampant crime, to name a few. Left me with plenty to think about.

A few pieces of good advice:

1. If you are sick, *please* do not go to work/school.

2. Stop touching your face all the time.

3. WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS!

  1. We went to it this weekend (yay first date!)…

    Anyway, we liked it too. Liked the script a lot. I can’t believe how many times people touch their face every day…whoa.

    And yes, that movie made us both want to take showers.
