COVID-19 and Chronic Non-communicable Diseases

Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are long-term illnesses that are not caused by an acute infection, progress slowly, and cannot be passed from person to person. These diseases affect people of all ages and are a public health concern because they are a source of morbidity in the context of the global population's ageing process and due to an unhealthy lifestyle. They are the world's largest cause of mortality and disability. These disorders have long-term health implications and frequently necessitate long-term therapy and care. Other essential problems, such as accidents and mental health disorders, are also classified as noncommunicable diseases.
