The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 90th COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital (GMH) at approximately 12:47 a.m. The patient was a 73-year-old male with underlying health conditions that were further compounded by COVID-19. He was admitted to GMH on November 8, 2020 and was a known positive case.

“The loss of a loved one always comes too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “The tragedy of COVID-19 is in its isolation–how it keeps families apart when their comfort is needed the most. However, that does not have to be our reality. If we come together and remain committed, we can end this pandemic.”
