It does indirectly at the start when Noah says Gates warned us that this could happen. Why would they bother talking about a simulation instead of the real thing?

John Hopkins ran other pandemic scenarios in the past. They are the medical version of war games done by the military. Event 201 and Clade X are flu scenarios and the Atlantic Storm and Dark Winter are smallpox scenarios.

Direct sources were you can see the scenario, watch video of the game play out, and read recommendations.
