Epidemics are country-wide diseases. Pandemics are world-wide diseases.

“Epidemic” refers to a sudden increase in the number of cases of a disease above what is normally expected. Similarly, a pandemic is basically an epidemic over a larger area—the CDC defines it as having spread “over several countries or continents, usually affecting a large number of people.”

A Pandemic is widely and very quickly spread, over a vast amount of People Globally. In a extremely short period of time. (A few months)

A Epidemic is spread over a group of people in a fixed area, or to a fixed group, while not spreading all over the world at one time.

Epidemic is when an outbreak remains within one country and pandemic is when the outbreak spreads to more countries.

An epidemic is is a disease in a community or small area, but a pandemic is a disease that is in multiple areas/around the world.

A pandemic is something more global affecting the whole country or even the whole world and relates to the disease being widely spread geographically

An Epidemic describes a problem that grew out of Control when taking about medicine it is an occurrence of an illness that is actively spreading in a community at a particular time

Epidemic is a disease outbreak and it spreads quickly. It affects many people at once. An epidemic occurs in a particular geographical area.

Pandemic is a type of epidemic that affects a larger geographical area, or it could be worldwide. Coronavirus has been declared as pandemic disease.

An epidemic is an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population.

Pandemic relates to geographic spread and is used to describe a disease that affects a whole country or the entire world.

An epidemic is different than a pandemic because a pandemic spreads world wide and an epidemic doesnt.

Epidemic is a term that is often broadly used to describe any problem that has grown out of control. An epidemic is defined as "an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population.
