In the spread of virus disease, capacity limitation of isolation wards for admitting infectors of virus to the hospital is important to decrease the number of persons who die and/or total infectors. Therefore, we developed multi agent-based virus spread simulator that has parameter of capacity limitation of isolation wards and reported the effectiveness of it in the previous research. However, the reliability evaluation of this simulator was insufficient. One of the traditional virus spread simulations is the ordinary differential equation-based approach. It is desirable that the output value of the number of total infectors of our multi agent-based simulator is similar to the traditional ordinary differential equation-based simulator. Therefore, in this paper, we discuss this point. As a result, we confirmed the similarity between our simulator and traditional simulator. In conclusion, our simulator has the reliability in this view point.
