CBSN - June 15, 2018

The Puerto Rican government lists the official death toll from Hurricane Maria at 64, but a Harvard study last month put the number at 4,645 and the Center for Investigative Journalism tallied 985 deaths.

Quartz reporter Ana Campoy joins CBSN to discuss a recent investigation that found glaring inconsistencies in way deaths are counted.
