Statistics about Infant Cytomegalic virus


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