HAGÅTÑA (JIC) — The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 24th Covid-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital Friday night at approximately 11:59 p.m. The patient was a 91-year-old male with comorbidities that were compounded by Covid-19 and was admitted to GMH on Aug. 26. He was a known positive case.

“It seems that every day we are reminded of the true horror of Covid-19 as we lose more and more people to this virus. These people had families, friends, and people they loved who continue to mourn for them. To the people he cherished, Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I express our sincerest condolences and sympathies,” said Guam Gov, Lou Leon Guerrero. “This pandemic has changed the way we as a community grieve, and I know it has not been the easiest. If you or someone you love need help, I urge you to call the Crisis Hotline. All of us have given up so much, but you don’t have to go through this alone.”

The Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center has a Crisis Hotline that is available 24/7 at (671) 647-8833/4. For those feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed or are needing to talk to someone, GBHWC has licensed experienced providers available, ready to assist the community with any heightened stress and anxiety experienced as a result of Covid-19.
