Social Distancing Game

Use the sliders below to find the optimal strategy to minimise infections in this toy universe of 10,000 people introduced to a single person infected with a novel virus.

Top slider is social distancing and there are two pairs of sliders for two government lockdowns. Each pair controls time and duration of deployment.

Notice that the epidemic is mostly just delayed unless social distancing is strictly adhered to and the lockdowns are perfectly placed. Even then, most of the population is still infected.
