BREAKING NEWS: 43rd COVID-19-related death in Guam

Posted on Sep 27 2020


The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s forty-third COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital at approximately 8:57pm last night. The patient was a 53-year-old male with underlying health conditions that were compounded by COVID-19. He was admitted to GMH on Aug. 30 after testing positive at Guam Regional Medical City.

“Almost every day since the start of September, we have mourned and grieved and shared moments of silence—some days more so than others. It is with great sadness to announce we have lost another person to COVID-19. I want the island to know that he was more than just a data point or statistic, and he should be remembered for the life he lived. To those he cherished, we offer our deepest sympathies and condolences in this most difficult time,” said Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. “To the people of Guam, I ask that you not take your loved ones or health or life for granted. Our actions do not only affect us, they affect those around us. We must remain committed to keeping our community safe and healthy. That is the only way we can win.”
