1. Difference between infection and disease?

Infection is the invasion or colonization of the body part by the pathogenic microorganism, not a final change in the body. When there is a change in either functionally or structurally it is called disease. When infection occurs, the disease may or may not exist. That is; all infections are not a disease. For example, when there is an infection with the HIV, there may not be a symptom of the disease. Moreover, normally E. coli are found in the large intestine, but their infection in the urinary tract usually results in disease.

2. Difference between communicable disease and contagious disease?

Infectious disease is the disease that causes by various pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungus, parasite, etc. When these diseases spread from one host to another host then it is called communicable disease. They spread from person to person, animal to person, insect to person or animal. But the contagious disease is transmitted from person to person. All the communicable disease are not contagious, but all the contagious disease are communicable. For example, malaria is a not contagious disease that comes from the bite of a mosquito. But STDs are contagious disease occurred by any kind of sex.

3. Difference between communicable disease and non-communicable disease?

Both communicable and non-communicable disease is caused by microorganisms. But communicable disease spread from one host to another and non-communicable disease doesn’t spread.

4. Is all infectious disease communicable disease?

No. All infectious diseases are not communicable. Because communicable diseases spread from one host to another. But some infectious disease for example tetanus doesn’t spread from one host to another.

5. Is all communicable disease contagious disease?

No. All communicable diseases are not contagious. Contagious diseases spread only from person to person. But communicable disease spread from person to person, animal to person, insect to person or animal. Communicable disease for example malaria is not contagious. Because it spreads from mosquito to human

6. Difference between signs and symptoms?

Signs are visible changes in the body that can be observed both by physicians and patients. For example, lesion, bleeding, etc. But symptoms are the functional change in the body that can’t be observed by the physician. The only patient can realize it. For example, anxiety, pain, etc.

7. Difference between disorder and syndrome?

A syndrome is a set of signs and symptoms. For example, Down syndrome. The disorder is an abnormal body functioning. For example ADHD.

8. Difference between mortality and morbidity?

Morbidity is the proportion of the total number of disease-affected people to the total number of population at a specific time. But Prevalence is the proportion of the total number of death to the total number of population at a specific time.

9. Difference between incidence and prevalence?

Incidence is the number of people affected by the new disease in a particular period. It gives the notion of how is the risk of occurring new disease. Prevalence is the proportion of a total number of cases to the total number of population at a certain time, without considering when it first appeared. It calculates both old cases and new cases.

10. How many bacterial cells and body cells in the human body?

There are 1×1013 body cells in the body and 1×1014 bacterial cell in the human body.
