And then something wonderful happened on my birthday - out of the blue, I received a beautiful arrangement of flowers with a note inside saying,'I just remembered it was your birthday and wanted to say I miss you.'

The sudden realization that Dr. Erin (Kate Winslet) is now also infected with the non-stopping virus. This scene shows us how vulnerable and professional Dr. Erin is as she makes the call to Dr. Ellis (Laurence Fishburne) to tell him that she is infected and how sorry she is that she won’t be able to continue the research and fight against the contagion.
A very emotional scene from ‘Contagion’ that shows us that no one is really safe and in which Kate Winslet takes a very small part and makes it bigger than life.
