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

India Reports New Daily Case Record, Announces More Lockdown as COVID Surges

HeadlineApr 14, 2021

India is fast-tracking the approval of foreign-made vaccines as it reported yet another record daily caseload of 184,000 infections Wednesday. Mumbai and the state of Maharashtra are going into a full two-week lockdown.

Uddhav Thackeray: “This disease is spreading at a horrifying pace. I say 'horrifying' because today’s numbers of positive cases in the state are the highest so far. Nearly 60,212 COVID-19-positive cases have been reported in the state today, hence the situation is very grim.”
