Thanks for the many great ideas, Alex. They will keep me busy for a while.

Probably different times for each of those to happen. And obviously a control for the likelihood of recovery vs death.

>> I just uploaded a stack called “Infection" to Sample Stacks which might be a little fun (in a scary way) for some of you. It’s a Monte Carlo simulation wherein a number of individuals randomly moving about in an enclosed space, are infected by a single randomly infected individual. I welcome any feedback that might lead to more accuracy in or improvement to this model.
