A Pandemic is (a disease) prevalent to a whole country or world whereas epidemic is specific to a community at a certain time.

Epidemic refers to an outbreak of many infections in a particular area, town, county, etc. Pandemic means that the outbreak is happening in many countries.

Epidemics are regional and Pandemics are transcontinental.
