Here is an example of results you could have gotten by playing around with the settings as suggested:

1. Hygiene measures


The blue lines are without hygiene measures, the red ones with.

It can be seen that the maximum number of infected is lower. If you pay attention, you will indeed notice that when the hygiene measures are respected, the scratchy have less chance of becoming infected in contact with a sick scratchy (purple). This means that the disease spreads less quickly, which makes it possible to better distribute the sick over time, and to avoid a large peak in sickness at once. At the moment, avoiding that there are many patients at once is one of the objectives of the measures put in place, to prevent hospitals from being overloaded and no longer being able to treat the sick._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_

2. Social Distancing


The maximum number of infected decreases linearly with the rate of social distancing. We also see that the line “flattens” according to the rate of social distancing, that is to say that the number of people who are sick at the same time remains lower. Which is super important to allow hospitals to manage the number of patients.

3. Quarantine


Here, not only do the lines flatten, but in addition the number of infected people decreases very significantly with the degree of confinement. The Scratchy stay in their box and sometimes a box can be spared a long time before being contaminated. This is also why we quarantine ourselves: to reduce the risk of contaminating other countries, especially developing countries which have fewer means to deal with the virus. It is the Scratchys that come out of their confinement that present a risk of  infecting others and spreading the virus to other boxes.

4. Conclusion

All these measures make it possible to reduce the number of people infected, but above all to reduce the speed of spread of the virus to allow hospitals to cope with the number of patients who come to their departments at the same time.
