About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Typhoid fever usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Typhoid fever at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Typhoid fever refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Typhoid fever 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.
