Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, 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. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly 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 monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Coronavirus Cases Surge in India, Peru, Spain, France and Elsewhere

HeadlineAug 14, 2020

India reported more than 60,000 new coronavirus cases for the third consecutive day. At the largest jail in Indian-administered Kashmir, one in five prisoners has tested positive.

The United Kingdom has imposed new travel restrictions on visitors from Spain and France after a surge of new coronavirus cases in Western Europe.

In Peru, officials have imposed new social distancing restrictions as confirmed coronavirus cases topped a half-million. Infections have spiked in Peru since the government lifted a lockdown on July 1.

Meanwhile, Mexico and Argentina have agreed to mass produce hundreds of millions of doses of an AstraZeneca vaccine developed by Oxford University, in case the vaccine proves safe and effective against the coronavirus. It’s currently in phase 3 of clinical trials.
