About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Meningococcal disease usually refers to the likely outcome of Meningococcal disease. The prognosis of Meningococcal disease may include the duration of Meningococcal disease, chances of complications of Meningococcal disease, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Meningococcal disease, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Meningococcal disease. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
