In the original publication of this article [1], the author pointed out the legends of Figs. 1 and 2 are not entire. The correct legends are:

Fig. 1 Rescaling severity distributions that include asymptomatic cases to obtain symptomatic severity distributions. Example derived using GBD 2016 global health state prevalence estimates for cocaine dependence

Fig. 2 Potential variation in disability weight for the 20 leading non-communicable diseases of YLD in the European region, 2017. YLD denotes Years Lost to Disability; 20 leading causes based on ranking of YLD rate for the European region; Non-communicable diseases only; Causes ordered ascendingly according to the number of YLD

The publisher apologizes to the readers and authors for the inconvenience.
