I think the problem was that the movie was just too short - they had to cut out 2/3rds of the book to fit it in, and what was left didn't make any sense.
If they'd done it as a "The Expanse" style hour-long-per-episode TV series, it could have been brilliant.
But most movies are like that - a short story spread over 2 hours.

I really don't like the "one in __", in this kind of context; it's just not precise enough language, for me.
A back-of-the-mind inference is that each family or grouping of five people has to choose one to stay at home. Even though the reader knows that is not the case, it still fuzzes the meaning, subconsciously (and if you don't know how to write for the subconscious, you shouldn't be writing headlines).
Percentage and fractions have no such implications: "20% of" and "a fifth of" don't conjure any illusions*.
* OK, so who immediately thought "unless you chop people into fifths!"? That's what I mean by writing for the subconscious.
