β€œThe emergency phase is over, but Covid is not,”
On May 5, 2023, The World Health Organization declared the global aspect of the disease to be over and there is no more emergency worldwide

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/who-ends-covid-global-health-emergency-rcna83046

The statement represents a major step towards ending the pandemic and comes three years after it first declared its highest level of alert over the pandemic

Covid global health emergency is over, WHO says https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-65499929

predicted YES

Although: "The WHO does not declare the beginning or end of pandemics, although it did start using the term for COVID in March 2020."

As of March 15, 2023, the current 7-day average of weekly new cases (21,422) decreased 19.7% compared with the previous 7-day average (26,685). A total of 103,801,821 COVID-19 cases have been reported in the United States as of March 15, 2023

predicted YES

It's only a matter of time before we dip below the threshold for calling it a pandemic, and I'm pretty confident the WHO will declare it so not long after: https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer

@firstuserhere What is that threshold? @Dreamingpast would you agree with that as a more precise resolution rule?
