The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 146th and 147th COVID-19-related fatalities occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital (GMH) on August 28, 2021.

The 146th COVID-19-related fatality was pronounced dead on arrival at GMH on August 28, 2021. The patient was an 84-year-old male, unvaccinated with underlying health conditions who had tested positive for COVID-19.

The 147th COVID-19-related fatality also occurred at GMH on Sunday, August 28, 2021. The patient was a 56-year-old male, unvaccinated with underlying health conditions, and had tested positive for COVID-19.

“Josh, Jeff, and I offer our deepest condolences to their friends and families. Let us continue to fight against COVID-19 to prevent further pain and tragedy. We can all play a part in making this community stronger. Please get vaccinated and protect the ones you love,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.

COVID-19-Related Fatalities Reviewed and Adjusted to 149

The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) Chief Medical Officer and Territorial Epidemiologist, in coordination with the Acting Chief Medical Examiner, have been conducting a review of all possible COVID-19-related deaths. This coordinated review process has resulted in the classification of two (2) additional deaths as COVID-19-related and has brought Guam’s current COVID-19-related death count to 149.

A review of all death certificates has revealed two additional COVID-19 related deaths from last year which were not previously reported to DPHSS:

A 67-year-old female, unvaccinated, with multiple comorbidities, whose death occurred on October 13, 2020 at the Guam Memorial Hospital. The COVID-19 vaccine was unavailable at that time.

A 55-year-old female, unvaccinated, whose death occurred on December 31, 2020 at the Guam Memorial Hospital. The patient was ineligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at that time.
