About statistics:

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