The Washington Post publish some fantastic COVD-19 outbreak simulations showing no countermeasures, forced quarantine, social distancing with 1/4 movement and 1/8 movement. The simulations clearly show that social distancing is the most effective at reducing the amount of people that get infected, and the more social distancing the better.
