Nebraska End Mask Mandates: There is NO Emergency
Esteemed Representatives of The People:
We, as part of various nationwide movements, including but not limited to People's Rights, Make Americans Free Again, and others, are asking for a motion to end mask mandates/directives/recommendations, based on the simple fact that there is no emergency, with the following facts on the coronavirus (since stats have been counted):
For the state of Nebraska:
Coronavirus Cases: 184,482. Recovered: 129,608.
For the United States: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/
Coronavirus Cases: 25,200,539. Recovered: 15,102,050.
15,522,413 Cases which had an outcome: 420,363 (3%) Deaths. 15,102,050 (97%) Recovered / Discharged.
Coronavirus Cases: 98,229,402. Recovered: 70,616,618.
25,509,398 Currently Infected Patients. 111,412 (0.4%) Serious or Critical. 25,397,986 (99.6%) in Mild Condition.
Globally, the recovery rate is at about 97%. Those who are Serious or Critical only account for 0.4%, while 99.6% in Mild Condition.
With these facts, and the facts I provide from the CDC, WHO, NEJM, etc, there is no emergency, and that masks are not only ineffective, but can have serious health effects.
“… from literature published during 1946–July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks…”
If you do not wish to motion to end the mask mandates, or want to support a mandate, then please provide evidence of an actual emergency—ie, active serious/critical and deaths being higher than the statistics provided--and a definite timelineas to when this emergency will actually end.
