A disease may occur in a country at a regular annual rate, which makes it endemic.
If there is a sudden rise in the number of cases in a specific month, we say that there is an epidemic.
As the disease continues to rise and spread to other countries, it becomes a pandemic.
Thus the terminology is related to both the number of cases and its geographical distribution.
