Um, according to the same article,
The research showed that “22 percent of the coral on the reef died due to the worst mass bleaching event on record.”
So the coral reef is actually 22% dead. 78% of the coral is still surviving.
Sure, it's bad, I mean optimally 100% of the organisms that build up the coral should be alive, but saying that "all of the population is dead" when actually 22% of it has bleached is a bit of an exaggeration.
I smell a tad of sensationalism.
