Learn how quarantines and social distancing

Each dot represents one person in a fictional community.
Healthy dots are green.
Infected dots are red.
Recovered dots are blue.
Dots that self-isolate have a grey border.
Experiment with different population and social isolation values. Once you start, a line graph will appear above. It'll visualize the numbers of infected simulated-people over time. The red line represents an *extremely* generous estimate of the world's medical capacity. Notice how quickly it becomes overloaded, even when participants self-isolate.
