I'm not a scientist but I found this link interesting. Apparently MEV-1 is a real life protein, and I assume it was not an accident that the makers of Contagion chose that name for the virus in the show.


I don't know how to interpret this scientific mumbo jumbo, but maybe someone can decipher why they would have chosen MEV-1 to be the fictional virus. In other words, what warning or message can we take from their MEV-1 selection in the movie?
