Hello everyone. I wonder if somebody could help me solve the following task. We've got two sentences: "There are many shopaholics nowadays. I think this is _disease too". My question is whether to consider the word "disease" countable and thus put an article subsequently or not. I'd very appreciate if somebody could give me a hand.

The answer to the question is "a".
