Generally this involves any cases where the player character or whatever or whoever you're taking care of can get sick.

Possibly purely story-based illness as well, as long as it has effect on gameplay.

Limitations:
* Status effects should NOT be included (e.g. something that causes a status of "diseased" for 5 minutes)

Preferable cases:
* Multiple disease types, and each can be contracted simultaneously
* Varying degrees of illness
* Gradual recovery
* Natural disease incubation
* No full recovery from prolonged or bad case of sickness
