    I don’t think so. A disease is a manifestation, sign of presence of a pathogen or a condition in the body. A cluster of viruses and bacteria- which can be reffered to as pathogenic clustering is therefore a low level, at a higher level the pathogenic cluster produces ‘effects’ or conditions or diseases . This is where Syndemic concept begins- a disease to disease interaction. But then, beyond this interaction is the environment context, a disease/context interaction – which is an hallmark of a true Syndemic.

    Could Syndemics be described by a cluster of viruses and bacterias instead of a cluster of diseases? Would it minimize the formula?
