"we know that they don't take excellent decisions causing the covid-19 ends"

in firs sentence, I want to reduce last "that clause" but I'm not sure whether it's correct

    Neither sentence is valid syntax.

To begin with the initial sentence is not correct. You might write it that way instead.

  • we know that they don't take the decisions that would cause the pandemia of covid-19 to end.

You can't use a that-clause with the verb "cause" (ref.).

enter image description here.

  • There is no virus known that causes COVID-19 symptoms. Perfectly valid syntax (even if the actual statement is nonsense).
