On the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show, host Sara Carter spoke about the final days of the U.S. military’s presence in Afghanistan. For her family, Afghanistan has been a central part of their lives.

“Our entire lives since September 11, 2001 have been all consumed,” Carter said. “Unfortunately, a lot of it with a war and terror, either covering the war on terror as a journalist, or my husband fighting in the wars overseas trying to target those terrorists that were planning on bringing that terror here to the United States again.”

As a result of the U.S. military leaving, hundreds of thousands of people have left along with them. In a full circle moment, Carter’s family is becoming a host family for a family of Afghan refugees.

“But we do have an Afghan family coming,” Carter said. “A former interpreter who I worked with, and his beautiful little baby boy, and his wife who did make it out. I’m still trying to get the rest of his family. And my husband is actually super thrilled about this.”

Meanwhile, two weeks ago, President Biden met with officials from Kosovo and Albania recently in an attempt to encourage more countries to take in Afghan refugees. However his efforts were in vain. Instead of helping people fleeing Afghanistan, countries hesitated to take them in because they’re concerned about COVID-19 health screenings. So, Carter is proud that she can do her part to help them.

“It was almost as if Marty, my husband, was doing what the United States could not do,” Carter said.

According to Carter, there could be anywhere between 300 to 1500 Americans remaining in Afghanistan. But the last U.S. soldier left Monday.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
