Prevalence and Incidence of Kuru


About prevalence and incidence statistics: The term 'prevalence' of Kuru usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Kuru at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Kuru refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Kuru diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.

Incidence (annual) of Kuru: 0%; the disease is almost extinct.
Incidence Rate: approx 1 in 0 or 0.00% or 0 people in USA [about data]
