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. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

CDC Warns Against Thanksgiving Travel as U.S. Coronavirus Cases Hit Another Record High

HeadlineNov 20, 2020

The United States confirmed 187,000 new coronavirus infections on Thursday — the highest one-day total of any nation since the start of the pandemic. More than 2,000 people died across the U.S. Thursday, the highest one-day death toll since May. Disease modelers at the University of Washington School of Medicine now predict over 470,000 U.S. coronavirus deaths by March 1 — unless face masks are widely adopted, something they say would save 65,000 lives.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is calling on Americans to avoid travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, warning family get-togethers could lead to a spike in new infections and deaths.
