Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will double your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Cases Mounting Across Europe as New Restrictions Enacted

HeadlineOct 19, 2020

In international coronavirus news, Russia hit a new high Friday with over 15,000 new cases. Russia has the fourth-highest caseload after the U.S., India and Brazil. Cases continue to surge across Europe. France has enacted a curfew across Paris and eight other cities. Belgium has closed bars and restaurants nationwide for a month. The British government has given police increased authority to crack down on people who don’t self-isolate after getting or being exposed to COVID-19. The foreign ministers of Austria and Belgium have tested positive for COVID-19, raising fears they may have caught it at a meeting last week with other European Union counterparts.
