Sara Carter: To Understand This Pathogen, We Need Random Sampling

During Fox News’ “The Next Revolution” on Sunday night, Sara A. Carter advocated for “random sampling” throughout the country, in order to understand the coronavirus and its spread.

“We need random sampling to understand this pathogen. And doctors have said this over and over again. Experts have said this. The Stanford study is an example of that in Santa Clara,” Carter explained.

She added, “To understand this pathogen, you don’t need to test everybody, you just need random sampling throughout the country to truly understand this. We may have already developed a certain herd immunity to the virus anyways, to the Wuhan virus.”

In the Stanford Study, in which Carter was referring to, health officials tested 3,300 residents of Santa Clara for the coronavirus antibody. Having the antibody would mean the person already had the virus and survived it, whether symptomatic or not. The study found that the virus “is much more widespread than indicated by the number of confirmed cases.”

American and Southwest stand by vaccine mandate, despite Abbott’s ban

American Airlines and Southwest Airlines are still planning to comply with President Biden’s executive order regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The order requires all their employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8t. As a result, they will be ignoring Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on vaccine mandates.

Abbott announced his own executive order, effectively banning mandates even from private employers, on Tuesday. “In another instance of federal overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workforce disruptions that threaten Texas’ continued recovery from the COVID-19 disaster,” Abbott said. “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced.”

Yet both airlines are requiring their employees to be vaccinated by Nov. 24. This comes despite Southwest’s impromptu cancellation of over 2,000 flights over the weekend. At the time, the airline blamed the cancellations on air traffic control and weather conditions. However, SaraACarter.com was unable to verify that any other airline had to cancel near as many flights for the same reasons. This has left many to speculate that Southwest actually cancelled flights due to their employees walking out as a direct result of the mandate.

Reporter Jack Posobiec tweeted out a flyer circulating among the anti-vaxx Southwest employees. Currently, they are planning a protest outside of Southwest headquarters next Monday. The protest will be called “Freedom Not Force.”

Southwest told Reuters it “would be expected to comply with the President’s Order to remain compliant as a federal contractor.” In addition, American similarly said Abbott’s order does not change anything.
