One of the first things you learn in an entry level epidemiology class after the definition of epidemiology is the difference between an outbreak an epidemic and a pandemic. I bought this book and one of the first things I read is the claim that there isn’t a standard definition. I’ve always understood it along the following lines: if we were in Nigeria there’s a certain level or percentage of malaria cases we would expect in the population. It’s a a country near the equator with a rainy season etc… X % of the population having malaria isn’t an epidemic. But if we were in chicago and the incidence of malaria exceeded historically occurring levels we’d call that an epidemic. But obviously we can’t decide on a specific percentage that fits all populations and all diseases because whether or not something is an epidemic is dependent on the context in which it is occurring.
