Uh-oh, zombies could overtake Chicago in 2 months
It would only take 60 days for 2 million Chicagoans to be zombified.
While there seemed to be little resistance in place to the walking dead--strategies such as training ordinary people to kill zombies and communications from city officials that tell people how to avoid them did make a difference.
This experiment draws attention to the model for strategizing public health issues.
This ChiSIM model can simulate the complex behavior of millions of "agents"--in this case, Chicagoans, moving through 2 million locations in the city.
Recently the model was used to identify a "hub" for MRSA--the Cook County Jail.
Where is Glenn when you need him?
