Sara Carter told the in-depth story of a sick woman she found at the border during her latest podcast episode. She first reported the story on Hannity. Now the woman’s full story is on the Sara Carter Show.

Carter interviewed a group of migrants near the Ansel Davis bridge in MacAllan, Texas. Among those she interviewed, someone told her of a woman who had collapsed up the road. So Carter went up the road to find her. When she did, the woman was very unwell.

“This woman is just bleeding profusely from her nose. And it was nonstop,” Carter said on the podcast. “She was severely dehydrated her heart rate was extraordinary.”

However, they had some trouble getting her medical attention. “Every time we dialed 911, we were getting Mexico’s 911,” Carter explained. “And they couldn’t come across the river to help.” As a result, they had to call the Border Patrol’s Emergency Medical Technicians. They took her to receive treatment, and left her two-year-old daughter with the group of migrants that continued traveling.

“But how many children? How many women like I found before have died out in the brush with no one to find them?” Carter said. “Their families never knowing where they’re at, just disappearing.”

Meanwhile, more migrants choose to make the journey across the border at the risk of their lives. “These are people that are being played as much as we are being played,” Carter said. “It isn’t like I sat around this poor woman from Honduras. She isn’t sitting around with another group of people planning to, what some people say, invade the United States or whatever. That’s not it. They’re just trying to find a better life.”

NY Gov Hochul issues executive order: Polio ‘an official diisaster’

New York Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul on Friday issued an executive order that Polio is now considered an official disaster. 

“On polio, we simply cannot roll the dice,” said Dr. Mary T. Bassett, New York State Health Commissioner. “If you or your child are unvaccinated or not up-to-date with vaccinations, the risk of paralytic disease is real. I urge New Yorkers to not accept any risk at all.”

The virus that causes polio has been found in the wastewater of more than one county, according to state health officials. “A sewage sample from Nassau County collected in August tested positive for poliovirus, following the prior detection of the virus in wastewater samples in Rockland County, Orange County, Sullivan County and New York City, further indicating that the virus is spreading in the area to some degree” reports The Wall Street Journal.

“The Nassau County sample was also genetically linked to the single confirmed case of paralytic polio that had been identified this summer in a young adult resident in Rockland County who was unvaccinated.”

Hochul’s executive order has been issued through Oct. 9, and expands the network of providers able to administer polio vaccinations to “include emergency-medical-services workers, midwives and pharmacists.”

The new order makes providers send polio-immunization data to the New York State Department of Health in order to better help health officials “focus vaccination efforts on areas of low uptake.”

New York state health officials have sent out alerts to providers, have hung fliers “in houses of worship, grocery stores and summer camps and talked with community leaders about boosting vaccination rates this summer.”

The Wall Street Journal Reports:

The poliovirus spreads mostly when a person touches their mouth after coming in contact with an infected person’s feces. Most infected people don’t develop any symptoms but can still spread the virus, a major concern for health officials, and around a quarter develop flulike symptoms. Those who are vaccinated are at low risk, health officials have said, as getting three doses of the polio vaccine administered in the U.S. is at least 99% effective at preventing paralytic disease.

Health officials, however, also said that certain New Yorkers who are fully vaccinated but at high-risk should receive a single lifetime booster. That applies to individuals who will or might have close contact with a suspected or confirmed polio patient, as well as healthcare workers in those areas who might handle poliovirus samples or treat patients who might have polio…

Two forms of the virus can cause paralysis, one of them being the wild poliovirus found in nature. The case in New York, on the other hand, is caused by vaccine-derived poliovirus, a mutated form of a strain used in an oral polio vaccine…

The oral polio vaccine, used in many parts of the world outside of the U.S., relies on a weakened, live form of the virus that recently inoculated children shed in their feces. In places with lower vaccine uptake, the weakened virus can sometimes circulate and mutate to become more like the wild virus and potentially paralyze people who are not fully vaccinated.
