Synonyms of "Plague" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between plague and pandemic ?
A:

Pandemic is really just the modern word for plague.

A general sickness, which mortally affected lots of people, was called plague for hundreds of years.

The media starting calling such things epidemics, then pandemics, because Plague sounds terrifying to most people.
Q: What is the difference between plague and Epidemic and pandemic ?
A: An epidemic is when an infectious disease becomes widespread in a specific community or area. People in other countries who get the disease normally have a direct connection to the origin country (like they recently travelled there). When COVID-19 first appeared, it was considered an epidemic because anyone who had it was either near China, or came in contact with someone who was recently in/near China.

A pandemic means that the disease has spread worldwide, and even people who have no connection to the origin country are getting it. Now, COVID-19 is considered a pandemic.

A plague is different from an epidemic and pandemic, because it has nothing to do with how widespread a disease is. A plague is a type of contagious (bacterial) disease, and it gives people specific symptoms (fever, delirium, and so on). For example, the bubonic plague was considered a plague.
Q: What is the difference between plague and epidemic ?
A: "plague" is usually used in a historical or figurative sense. Because of the Black Death, which killed one third of Europe in the 14th century, that disease is called "bubonic plague" or simply "the plague." A literal widespread outbreak of another disease should be called an epidemic.
