Community Coronavirus Model
This video explores a simple epidemic model, parameterized for a community confronting coronavirus.
You can run the model using Vensim PLE or the Model Reader (or any higher version). Our getting started and running models videos provide a quick introduction to the software.
For PLE/Pro/DSS: community corona 7.mdl For the Reader (or any other): community corona 7.vpmx.zip
There’s now an update: community corona 8-mdl+vpmx.zip (vpmx and mdl formats)
We’ve also translated it to Ventity, which has some complementary capabilities.
There’s another copy at metasd.com, where you can share comments. Also, check back here for updates to the model.
Epidemic Modeling Tutorial
This companion video builds up the classic SIR epidemic model from basic components, illustrates some Vensim features, and touches some System Dynamics concepts of growth, equilibrium, and loop dominance.
The models are in this package:
