Screenwriter Scott Z. Burns did extensive research into the spread of infectious diseases when he was writing the 2011 Steven Soderbergh film Contagion, and what he sees now with Ebola scares him.

But it’s not the virus itself that frightens Burns — it’s the reaction to it.

Burns said that Contagion, was designed to communicate ideas about the way pandemics could be made worse by fear, social inequity and a lifestyle that allows unknowingly infected patients to hop on airplanes - something that reportedly happened with an Ebola-infected nurse in the United States.
