The 2019 Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 has already affected the lives of many. It has also taken the lives of thousands of people, making it a global threat. That's why different territories are imposing their way of containing the severity of the pandemic. There were already countries that are in total lockdown, especially in Europe. For those who are not that aware, lockdown is an emergency protocol to keep people or information moving from one area to another. In other words, people in the said countries are not allowed to go out of their homes to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Meanwhile, others, especially the ones who flew out of the country, have undergone a 14-day self-quarantine, as per doctors' advice.

So what do we do? We can't go out of our house to go to a party or to see our friends due to social distancing. Malls, stores, and other businesses are also closed as its owners also safeguard their employees from the disease. There is not much to do with the rate of how COVID-19-positive patients increase. If you are bored being in lockdown already, or perhaps required to stay at home for 14 days, we got you covered. Our page contains a list of pandemic movies to keep you company indoors. We've included films which plot revolves around a disease or a virus transmission which caused panic to the people.
