Nearly 18 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, more than 2,000 people have died of an illness related to the attacks. That figure was provided to the Seattle Times last year by The 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund and World Trade Center Health Program. Officials at each organization told the news outlet there are no records the number of people who died from 9/11-related illness, but said, at the time, the number was likely close to 2,100. More.
Deaths from 9/11-related illnesses will soon pass those lost on day of attacks
