Nearly 3,000 people died in the wake of Hurricane Maria, which battered Puerto Rico last September, the U.S. territory announced after a new study.

"That caused a number of issues", Goldman said, explaining that people were forced to exert themselves physically or were exposed to intense heat without fans or air conditioning.
That figure was always risible - particularly when you consider that the 150 miles per hour (241 kmh) winds caused around $90bn worth of damage and left households for, on average, 84 days without electricity; 64 days without water and 41 days without cellular telephone coverage.
"We still don't know when deaths came back to baseline", Goldman said. To reduce such errors, the team recommends that physicians and other relevant health care providers in Puerto Rico - and on the mainland - receive explicit training so that they can more accurately certify deaths under disaster conditions.
The first phase of the study cost $305,000. The study found that poor residents had a 60 percent higher chance of death, and that older males had a 35 percent higher risk than they would have in previous years.
The research represents the most rigorous study of excess mortality due to the hurricane done to date. Maria was a Category 4 with 154-mph winds.
For comparison, the death toll from 2005's Hurricane Katrina - the costliest hurricane in United States history - was far lower, and estimated at 1,833.
Rossello pledged to carry out the recommendations, though there are questions about Puerto Rico's ability to do so.
