Comments and Questions

Good Model

The model is simple yet provides a nice insight into the dynamics of the disease. The code is simple and straightforward with sufficient description provided in the info tab. My minor comment is that you have modelled healthy people to avoid tested infected people. (1) In reality, how can a person know whether the other person is infected or not? (2) If the person is tested positive, he/she will be kept in isolation. Therefore, it is unlikely that a healthy person will meet a tested infected person. In my understanding so far, infection is happening during the period when the person begins to show symptoms (even minor) and before he gets tested and is put in isolation. Best,
