OMG I was saying that while treating diseases after they manifest increases economic activity, preventing them from occurring in the first place is more beneficial to society.

Treatment costs more than prevention, so it seems to make the economy bigger. But allowing diseases to manifest carries a cost both in terms of human suffering to the individual, and in terms of *decreased* economic activity because in general, people with diseases are less productive.
