The decision was made in a review of the decreasing number of death and hospitalization due to the COVID-19 effects.

Dr Tedros also reminded in a press conference that the new declaration doesn’t mean to revoke the safety and precautions by any countries. 

The decision was not taken fast. This was based on several analyses based on the data regarding the COVID-19 waves, Hospitalization, and death count. Dr Tedros also mentioned managing other infectious diseases alongside COVID-19
