Since PSGN is not preventable by antibiotics use, it should be more common cmpared to Rheumatic fever which is almost completely preventable if antibiotics were started within a week of the throat infection.

If you watched Dr Conrad Fischer video regarding RF with Mitral Stenosis, it's a big big help in understanding the epidemiology of RF all over the world.

God Bless.
