Using Netlogo for Disease Modeling

Overview

Since the term “Simulation” or modeling was used frequently in the media recently to get an understanding of the spread of covid-19, I have created an instructive agent-based model for the simulation of disease spread and limited hospital capacities. Since this model is only “instructive” for the purpose of understanding modeling, I have also created a video to explain the model and some implications due to the simplicity of the design.

Please watch the video first, before playing around with the simulation: English Version

You can test the Simulation yourself here: http://bit.ly/NLinfection

If you are interested in seeing the current case numbers in comparison to other countries, have a look at this shiny application that I made: https://andrecalerovaldez.shinyapps.io/CovidTimeSeries/
