China is troubled with epidemics

It is very serious situation and it is now the Chinese Lunar New Year which sees many celebration activities stopped and the nationwide people movement suspended. Tourism and catering industry suffer hugely.
God bless China and Chinese people!

Hello Nanning. Do we know the cause of these epidemics - the latest of which is fortunately not yet a pandemic?

--

ORIGIN - epidemic
early 17th century (as an adjective): from French épidémique, from épidémie, via late Latin from Greek epidēmia ‘prevalence of disease’, from epidēmios ‘prevalent’, from epi ‘upon’ + dēmos ‘the people’.

ORIGIN - pandemic
mid 17th century: from Greek pandēmos (from pan ‘all’ + dēmos ‘people’) + -ic.
