How accurately did Contagion (2011) predict COVID-19?

Contagion is 9 years old but with coronavirus dominating the news it’s become almost eerily prophetic. How much did it predict correctly about COVID-19? How does it stand up to scientific scrutiny?

I think this makes me the last doctor on the internet to do a ‘Doctor Reacts To…’ video but I’m glad I saved it for a corker. I always thought if I did a reaction video it would be to The Knick TV show because I love it deeply and am a medical history nut but in the end it was Contagion. However, both were co-written and directed by Steven Soderbergh with fantastic tense scores by Cliff Martinez. So here’s hoping Soderbergh makes some more medical stuff.
