Info Edit

Prevalence is defined as the number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time per 100,000 people. Asthma is a chronic lung disease marked by spasms in the bronchi usually resulting from an allergic reaction or hypersensitivity and causing difficulty in breathing. We define asthma as a doctor’s diagnosis and wheezing in the past year.
