At the 15th Meeting of the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) global Emergency Committee regarding the coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) pandemic, held on May 4, the Committee members highlighted the global decreasing trend in COVID-19 deaths, the decline in COVID-19 related hospitalizations and intensive care unit admissions, and the high levels of population immunity to SARS-CoV-2.
The committee advised that it is time to transition to long-term management of the COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore, the World Health Organization (WHO), has determined that COVID-19 is now an established and ongoing health issue which no longer constitutes a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).
