No more than you get shot by living in the US. I know people who have
been in cuba, and they report no such things, and they also don't just
stayed in the hotels.

The articles you mention was about people dying when trying to leave
their country to emigrate to the US. It was an isolatedact, even the US
official cited in the article told this, and still, are you sure it was
so or is it just desinformation ?
