Inspired by the model at Washington Post the following computational essay creates and visualizes an agent-based simulation of epidemic spread in a small community. The rules that control the agent's behaviour can be easily modified or extended.

The basic assumptions are that agents move freely and without purpose within a square space. If a vulnerable agent is touched by an infected agent, they immediately become infectious for a fixed period of time and before becoming permanently immune to the disease. Agents do not interact with each other in any other way.
