Can you name a movie that played during a free preview weekend (about a year ago)?

The movie was shown in the U.S. during a free preview weekend on one of the premium channels of Dish Network. I do not remember which channel it was, I'm leaning toward either Starz or Showtime. I only saw a part of the movie, and want to see the rest.
Movie details I remember:
Film Location: Europe
Plot: some type of disease has gotten loose and the investigators are trying to track down human victims before they die and/or infect other people. The disease may have been a man-made virus. The disease is (of course) highly contagious and kills in a matter of hours. I think the disease was spread by touch, the race was to contain before it mutated into an airborne form.
Cast: The primary characters are two investigators, a female and male who (I'm guessing) had not worked together before this case. I think the male lead may have been played by an actor more recognizable a decade or two ago.
Best recollection: I remember one scene in particular where the investigators are right behind one of the victims who does not realize he is infected (but visibly is). The victim just knows he is being chased and loses the investigators at a restaurant or cocktail party. When the investigators realize the victim is gone, they quarantine the entire building.
I don't remember that the movie was all that great, I'd say it had low to moderate production values. But I'd like to see the rest of it. Can you help me identify the film?
