CPI Certifies That Rosselló Government Did Not Deliver All Information Regarding Deaths in Puerto Rico
After conducting an exhaustive inventory of several thousand digital and printed documents, the Center for Investigative Journalism (CPI) certified Wednesday night through a compliance order submitted to the court that it received only part of the information requested to the government of Puerto Rico about deaths on the island after Hurricane María. A database showing causes of death was received via CD as an Excel file, with information from September 18, 2017 to June 11, 2018. However, the database did not indicate what percent of deaths per month were already entered. The CPI has made the database publicly available for direct download. The CPI also noted that this database, which contains 22,985 entries, listed all the deaths that occurred in Puerto Rico from September 18, 2017 to June 11, 2017.
