What the difference between an infection and disease?
Infection could be considered disease due to pathogens entering the body whereas a disease doesn't have to be caused by a pathogen. Coronary heart disease and diabetes are examples of non-infectious diseases. A disease could be infectious however, such as tuberculosis, but does not have to be.
