The Minister of Health was requested to chair and coordinate with other agencies to prepare documents to announce the end of the Covid-19 pandemic and submit the documents to the prime minister for consideration.

Based on the World Health Organization’s warnings, the prime minister also requested the ministry build a sustainable management plan for Covid-19 in 2023-2025.
