## WHAT IS IT?
The model simualtes the spread of an infectious disease in an Irish town.
## HOW IT WORKS
The disease component of the model is based off a SIR or SEIR component model. Depending on the type of model selected (SIR or SEIR) agents are either in the susceptible, infected or recovered category or the susceptible, exposed, infected or recovered category. If a susceptible agent comes into contact with an infected agent the susceptible agent has a chance, determined by the infectivity, of becoming exposed or infected. If an agent becomes exposed they have a time period where they are exposed to the disease but not yet infectious. Once infected the agent has a set period of time where they will remain infectious before moving to the recovered stage.
Agent movement in the model is in a straight line. Agents move between their current location and desired destination. A set of rules determine when an agent will move. During week days agents typically move between home and work or home and school and on weekend days agents will move freely through the community. If two agents are on the same patch they are considered in contacct with each other.

## THINGS TO TRY
Run the model with and without socioeconomic clustering to see differences in results.
