British theatre and film actor Jude Law has been aware of the likelihood of a pandemic since 2011. He spoke about this in a video interview published on the YouTube channel of GQ magazine.

Lowe explained that scientific experts advising director Steven Soderbergh on the set of Contagion, in which the actor played one of the main roles, warned of the real likelihood of such a pandemic. “It was clear that something like this was going to happen,” said the actor.

“The scientists who worked with Stephen Soderbergh were experienced and educated people,” Law said. In his opinion, they knew exactly what to expect. They told the cast and crew that this would happen. “The question was when not if,” added the artist.
