Note: The following text may contain spoilers

CONTAGION is a drama about a worldwide outbreak of a lethal virus and the efforts of an international team of doctors to combat it.

Threat

Moderate threat includes scenes which show people briefly vomiting or frothing at the mouth before they die. Other moments includes brief sight of people being attacked, and a scene showing a gang of young men threatening a woman and child in their house when they search for a possible antidote.

Medical gore shows brief sight of a woman's scalp being peeled back as technicians look into her skull.

There are infrequent moderate sex references, including a man reminding a woman that they have just had sex, and a man commenting that the authorities have got a 'hard-on'.

There is also occasional mild bad language ('ass', 'shit', 'bullshit') and infrequent verbal drug references when a man denies that he or his dead wife have taken MDMA or Ecstasy.
