This framework uses agent-based transport simulations and an epidemiological compartment model to track the spread of COVID-19 in South Africa. The effects of different measures on further infection dynamics are investigated.

The Episim framework builds upon the established transportation simulation MATSim and is capable of tracking agents’ movements within a network and thus computing infection chains. Several characteristics of the virus and the environment can be parametred, whilst the infection dynamics is computed based upon a compartment model. The spread of the virus can be mitigated by restricting the agents’ activity in certain places.

Under development.
