# Corona Math

On March 17, Simon started a series of math and coding projects about COVID-19. The first projects he called Corona Math: Why Social Isolation?

This is part I of my Corona Math series. In this video, I calculate how many people will be infected with the coronavirus after 10 spreads (I call them iterations). I also calculate how many days there are in each iteration.

In the second video Corona Math: Where is the Inflection Point? (recorded on March 19), I attempt to calculate the “inflection point” for COVID-19, and ultimately fail. I come to the conclusion that it’s too unpredictable, and we’re now only at the very beginning. I used the Wolfram Language for this video, so here’s a link: https://www.wolframcloud.com/obj/721d493e-156b-4131-818c-e59476d1d2aa

10 days later Simon recorded another Corona Math project. In Belgium, we’re having a #Covid_19 “light #lockdown“, which means we’re allowed to walk within a 2km radius from our home. Simon calculated how many people would fit into his designated walking area, considering #SocialDistancing:
