Using Netlogo for Disease Modeling


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:
