Q: Qual é a diferença entre plague e Epidemic e 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: Qual é a diferença entre plague e 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.
