Morbidity vs. Mortality

Morbidity vs. Mortality

Morbidity – (noun) proportion of sickness for a specific disease in a geographical locality

Example:

1. "The morbidity of measles in Mexico is higher than that in the US."

Mortality – (noun) being subject to death; frequency of death in a specific location

Example:

1. "The mortality rate during war is unthinkable."

*Tip/Hint: morbidity has to do with sickness, and mortality has to do with death.

Let's use both morbidity and mortality together in a sentence:

"If the morbidity of HIV in Africa increases, then it will be facing the highest mortality rates ever on record."
