The COVID-19 outbreak has ravaged the globe. As the world's scientists work feverishly to invent a vaccine, the remaining uninfected have fled to camps believed to be virus-free. 

Yours is one such camp. 

Vaccine is expected in 30 days.  Healthy people generate revenue. 
Additional test kits and beds can be purchased. Good luck!

Update 1.5 - 6 Apr 2020

 Major

BACKGROUND

"Three weeks ago I was idly thinking of how someone ought to make a little game that shows how the coronavirus spreads, how testing changes things, and how social distancing works.  ...  But I have to admit, I kinda figured someone would have made it by now. But they haven't." - Game designer Raph Koster on FB

I came across this a few days ago and took that as a personal challenge to make the game.  

The project is released, but it's going to be my pet project while in quarantine, so I plan to do regular updates for a while. Please leave feedback with any bugs, comments, suggestions, etc. Thanks! 


KNOWN BUGS 

  • Sometimes hospitalized entities will stay in the hospital after they are recovered. Selecting them again and clicking the Hospitalize button will punt them out.
