1. That's the media using an "inside baseball" medical term, probably without realizing it.

Doctors/epidemiologists call various infections community acquired/spread to differentiate from infections passed along in a health care setting (often called hospital acquired). In that usage, community just refers to all non-health care settings, and implies no comment upon the size of a group of people (local, national, or global).
