In this interview, reporter Laura Moscoso speaks to Professor Moreno about the discrepancy between the death toll figures released by the Puerto Rican government and the actual number of deaths caused by Hurricane María. She also addresses the lawsuit that Centro de Periodismo Investigativo (CPI), the non-profit organization for which she works, filed and won against the Puerto Rican government demanding the release of death certificates in the months after Hurricane María.
