Tragically, her son soon follows. Her husband, Mitch, soon learns he is immune to the illness, and fights to protect their daughter. Meanwhile, a worldwide pandemic is spreading. Both the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are hard at work determining the strain and working on a viable vaccine, but millions die in the meantime. No one can be trusted, and no one can be cured. In Contagion, societal order begins to crumble as scientists race for a solution.
