About statistics: This page presents a variety of statistics about Viral digestive infections. The term 'prevalence' of Viral digestive infections usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Viral digestive infections at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Viral digestive infections refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Viral digestive infections 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.
