The Democratic National Convention, the event during which the Democratic Party will choose its candidate to face Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential elections, has been delayed by a month, until the week of August 17, due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Committee of the Democratic National Convention. It is the last large-scale event canceled or delayed due to the spread of the virus and COVID-19, the associated respiratory disease.

The convention was scheduled for the week of July 13 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The now-delayed event will still take place in Milwaukee, and the news comes as the number of COVID-19 infections in the United States continues to rise.
