An interesting video with some thought provoking simulations of infections

I don’t wish to shill for the source of the video, but I enjoyed it, and I found it well presented. I remember playing with some toy simulations in a Washington Post (I think) article that I also enjoyed. If nothing else, it does help one visualize the otherwise unseen effects of spreading a virus.

My takeaway, which I am certain will be not be the same as everyone (or even anyone) else’s, is that social distancing, while annoying, loneliness inducing and inconvenient for many, is maybe the best hope for not overwhelming society’s support services. (It’s just damn inconvenient that it is almost completely at odds with a society built on factories, most especially for things like food.)
