Thank you for sharing, this is really helpful to me understand this kind of virtus transmission and how to effectively prevent the spread of them.

Thanks for comment.  By using mobile phone data to understand the movement of a country‚Äôs population, migration is a major issue in the control of malaria. Attempts to clear the disease from an area are often thwarted because moving populations can quickly reintroduce the malaria parasite.
only available data on population mobility came from occasional household surveys and limited border crossing information. Now, with 90 to 95 per cent of the population using mobile phones, we have an incredible amount of data at our disposal. By monitoring this data we can help to contain outbreaks and avoid the disease being transmitted across international borders

Play as a virus, that's really interesting way to approach the problem.
