I will like to see the findings of the report and how they got to that number. I hope is not politically tilted so it can be used to get more federal aid.



Quote:
Department Secretary Hector Pesquera said the new total will reflect the findings of the investigation, which is expected in the coming weeks. The figure of more than 1,400, Pesquera said, "is simple math" based on the number of excess deaths. "This is not the official number of deaths attributable to Hurricane Maria," he said.

Draft copy apparently said attributed to hurricanes but supposedly final copy to US Congress is going to now say "may or may not be" attributable to hurricanes solely. But the official third party review is due out around beginning of September I believe. Just based on average deaths of previous years 1,427 more people passed away then what would be 'normal' in same time frame of previous years from what I understand. Usually hurricane deaths are rated as direct and indirect and totaled together into a final total.

I like to see the details of the report and what methods they use to get to the number. It has to be done in a case by case basis of each death and they have to look at each medical record of each person. How they passed away and if it could have been any medical explanation other than the hurricane recovery or lack of electricity or bad or slow services at the hospitals.


I want to know how many of those cases are just suicides.
