Welcome to Open-SIR’s documentation!

Open-SIR is an Open Source Python project for modelling pandemics and infectious diseases using Compartmental Models, such as the widely used Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) model

The current stage of the software is Alpha.


  • Model the dynamics of infectious diseases

  • Parameter fitting

  • Calculation of confidence intervals

  • CLI for interfacing with non Python environments (Bash, Node.JS, Matlab, etc).

So far, Open-SIR provides an implementation of the SIR model and the novel SIR-X model, developed by Maier and Dirk from the Robert Koch Institut
