S242: Contagion! - The Wrath of Epidemics in Splash 2013 (Apr. 06, 2013)
Anyone see the film Contagion? The film is based on the idea of an epidemic - the quick spread of an infectious disease to thousands of people. How does a disease like SARS or H1N1 swine flu spread so fast? How is the country or even sometimes the whole world to fight against such a clever disease? Learn about how one person getting sick can lead to a potentially lethal epidemic.
