What if there was a deadly disease that slowly but surely reached every continent, and both governments and public health officials were powerless to stop it?

Sure, it’s a story that may hit a little too close to home considering the coronavirus headlines, but the story in Contagion may feel a little cathartic to anyone hoarding hand-sanitizer and wearing facemasks.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream Contagion.
