A 57-year-old female is Guam’s 104th COVID-19-related fatality, according to the Joint Information Center.
The woman had underlying conditions further compounded by COVID-19. She was admitted to the Guam Memorial Hospital on Nov. 5 and died at approximately 2:36 p.m. Saturday.
“Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I extend our sincerest condolences and sympathies to her family and friends,” said Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. “As the pandemic continues to test our limits, supporting one another becomes more important than ever. If you know someone struggling, I encourage you to reach out and see what you can do to help. This virus is isolating but it doesn’t diminish the importance of human connection.”
Of 226 samples tested, 24 people tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday.
That brings Guam’s overall total to 6,476 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 104 deaths, 1,942 cases in active isolation, and 4,430 no longer in isolation.
Among Guam’s three hospitals, 54 patients have been admitted for COVID-19. Of those, 11 are in the intensive care unit with five patients on ventilators.
