The Government of Puerto Rico did it again. Far from contributing to the transparency and clarity associated with the issue of Hurricane María-related deaths, it published a confusing, two-sentence statement in its draft of the Economic and Disaster Recovery Plan, implying that the absurd figure of 64 fatal victims had been revised in June and increased to 1,427. There was no such revision. There is no new official list of names of people killed by the storm. The mistaken way in which these two sentences are written led the The New York Times to err in a story published Thursday entitled “Puerto Rican Government Acknowledges Death Toll of 1,427,” which in turn was repeated by some of the main media outlets in the United States.
