Data on chronic or infectious disease.

2 Answer(s)

chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects or a disease that comes with time. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months. Common chronic diseases include arthritisasthmacancerCOPDdiabetes and viral diseases such as hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.

So, out of this arthritis, diabetes etc. comes under chronic diseases whereas human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus, and the H1N1 influenza virus etc. comes under chronic infectious disease. And with time the situation is getting worse as the infection causing pathogens are getting resistant to antibiotics e.g. multi-drug resistant TB.
