/ɪˈræd.ɪ.keɪt/ (verb)

to destroy something completely, annihilate, obliterate, devastate, get rid of, eliminate, wipe out, exterminate, do away with, stamp out, remove, abrogate, expunge

Eradication is the reduction of an infectious disease’s prevalence in the global host population to zero. It is sometimes confused with elimination, which describes either the reduction of an infectious disease’s prevalence in a regional population to zero, or the reduction of the global prevalence to a negligible amount. Further confusion arises from the use of the term eradication to refer to the total removal of a given pathogen from an individual (also known as clearance of an infection), particularly in the context of HIV and certain other viruses where such cures are sought.
