Data concerning pandemics, presented on ministerial WebPages, depicts the scale of the problem. Statistical analysis can be of descriptive or conclusion character. Descriptive analysis will be used for the needs of this article. Findings: Due to editorial limitations, the article includes fragments of research results which present the scale of the problem. This is the basic criterion for the selection of materials used in the article. Some data presented in the table, concerning infections and deaths show that there is a kind of regular return of the virus called waves by the specialists. Subsequently occurring waves caused certain decisions related to protection and treatment of the population.

The fight with mass diseases is of unique character from the viewpoint of medical knowledge and the possibility of saving human beings. Historical and scientific documents uncover different kinds of analyses and descriptions of various situations. Performed research is a part of general scientific accomplishments of different medical, social and economic environments. Presented examples constitute scientific value with the possibility of insight into complete data subjected to analysis and evaluation.
