Medical
German term or phrase: erregerdruck
looking for the exact medical term. Perhaps something with "pathogen"? To the best of my understanding, the term needs to describe a window of time when the likelihood that an illness will break out among a given community is at its greatest.

pathogen pressure
Explanation:
From first link below:

Considering the framework first, disease predictions are made according to concepts of host resistance and pathogen pressure. At present these concepts are considered subjectively as influencing a perceived, but unquantified, threat of disease progression. Although it is clear that resistance reduces disease progress and pressure increases disease progress, there is no way of working out, for instance, the degree of resistance necessary to nullify a certain amount of pressure.

Quoting from above: "...[pathogen] pressure increases disease progress..." So as the pressure increases, the rate of progress of the disease also increases. This seems to correspond to the concept you're describing (apart from the fact that it's almost word-for-word). Erregerdruck is not a timeframe but the effect of a pathogen on the host. This is confirmed by the second quoted text below.

From second link below:

The company is now ready to run field tests to determine the effectiveness of their gene. In order to put their potatoes under a severe pathogen pressure for disease development they have decided to conduct their tests in Peru. As an ancient home of potato, they have selected an area in Peru that has many biotypes and races of P. infestans. Therefore, when they have completed their tests they will be able to unequivocally state the level of resistance of FamineGone to all known biotypes and races of P. infestans.
