Epidemics have in some cases been identified with the arrival of a new infection to a population with no prior exposure. The result is that a percentage of the population is unable to fully overcome the infection and it becomes chronic in them. This failure is usually due to a genetic characteristic.

In some cases, the infection is transmitted poorly which then allows the infection to 'burn-out' in a region.

  55. 1984 - 1992: "From 1984 until 1992 an endemic period occurred in which an unusually large number of clusters and epidemics of M.E./CFS have been recognized in North America. After an apparent initial increase in morbidity in 1983, there seemed to have appeared in late summer of 1984 an unprecedented increase of sporadic and epidemic cases across North America. Although certain geographical hot spots seem to have taken up much of the medical interest, this endemic situation probably represents an unusual and unremitting morbidity in all areas of the United States and Canada. Some of the clusters and epidemics are listed."
