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

India Logs Pandemic-High Daily Death Toll; COVID Surges in Haiti, Where 0% Are Vaccinated

HeadlineJun 10, 2021

India reported over 6,100 deaths from COVID-19 on Thursday — the highest one-day death toll of any nation since the start of the pandemic. The high death tally came because one Indian state reported thousands of previously unreported deaths, adding to evidence that India has vastly undercounted the number of people sickened and killed by the coronavirus.

Haiti is experiencing its worst-ever surge of COVID cases, with hospitals stretched to their limits. A severe shortage of testing in Haiti is masking the true scale of the outbreak. This comes as Haiti has yet to administer a single shot of coronavirus vaccine.

In France, Parisians celebrated new freedoms Wednesday as officials eased coronavirus restrictions, reopening indoor restaurant service and rolling back curfews. COVID-19 cases are plummeting in France, where nearly one in five people are fully vaccinated.
