chronic disease account for what percentage of all deaths currently?

Chronic diseases account for a sizable proportion of all deaths globally. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic diseases are responsible for approximately 70% of all deaths worldwide.
The leading causes of death from chronic diseases are cardiovascular diseases (such as heart disease and stroke), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma) and diabetes. These four types of chronic diseases alone account for around 45 million deaths per year, or about 80% of all deaths from chronic diseases.
It's worth noting that the percentage of deaths due to chronic diseases can vary depending on the region and population. In high-income countries, chronic diseases account for a larger proportion of deaths, while in low- and middle-income countries, infectious diseases and maternal and child health issues still account for a significant proportion of deaths.
