Almost all previous studies of disease infection models have used differential equations. A differential equation can show the change in the number of infected patients over time, but cannot show the route of infection. The model used in this paper applies a cellular automaton to an infection model. The advantage of this is that it can present the temporal route of infection. It is proposed that a basic small-size model would consist of 5×5 cells and introduce several rules. Several properties are drawn from the simulations. In the future, the basic model will be developed into a worldwide pandemic model.
