After affecting the whole world, coronavirus has given us the idea of the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic. They both have the same meanings, but the epidemic is used when a disease spreads within a short area in a specific time. However, the pandemic is just like an epidemic. Still, it can be considered when the particular disease or illness spreads through to another continent and lasts for much time, creating problems financially, economically, politically, and educationally. Several pandemics, such as smallpox and the Spanish flu, have existed throughout history. Black Death was also regarded as one of the most dangerous pandemics worldwide.
