Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll 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. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

HeadlineNov 12, 2020

Worldwide coronavirus cases have topped 52 million, with nearly 1.3 million deaths reported — though both figures are likely to be far short of the true toll. France has overtaken Russia to become the worst-affected country in Europe, reporting nearly 36,000 new cases on Wednesday alone.

In Argentina, President Alberto Fernández has gone into quarantine after a member of his Cabinet tested positive for coronavirus.

In Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelensky has been hospitalized with COVID-19, two days after announcing he’d tested positive. On Wednesday, Ukraine announced more than 11,000 new infections, a daily record.
