Ebola would be an epidemic. The difference between a pandemic and an epidemic is the population size and locality of infection. An epidemic is a greater than normal amount of infection in a particular area or when infection occurs in an area that isn't normally associated with a certain disease. A pandemic is when the epidemic reaches to world wide proportions.
