❝ In Puerto Rico, the official government estimate for the number of people who died as a result of Hurricane Maria (the hurricane that struck the island in late September 2017) is just 64. But a new study from Harvard University, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, estimates that the true number is closer to 4,645—that is, more than 70 times the official estimate.
❝ According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), deaths that occur due to unsafe conditions or loss of medical services caused by a hurricane or other weather events are attributed to that weather event…
The New York Times, CNN, and Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism have all independently reported death tolls significantly higher than the 64 deaths the Puerto Rican government has been reporting.
If this was a battlefield assaulted by Imperial America, the number of enemy dead would be inflated, US casualties diminished. The mindset is at least consistent among the bigots running this country.
I can’t say, “our country”. It hasn’t been our country in a long, long time.
