This program is a basic agent based SIR model of Ebola spread in a population over time. The SIR model is made up of three seperate components.

(S) Susceptible population: Individuals that are susceptible to the virus, and if exposed may become infectious.

(I) Infected population: Individuals that have been infected but currently have no symptoms.

(R) Removed population: Individuals who have recovered and developed an immunity to the virus or who have died from the virus. In both cases they no longer affect the transmission dynamics in any way.

This model is meant to demonstrate what happens under different initial conditions of virus introduction, infectivity, recoverability, and death rate and how the respective components are affected.
