The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 80th COVID-19-related fatality was pronounced dead on arrival at Guam Memorial Hospital (GMH) at approximately 9:40 p.m. last night. The patient was a 63-year-old male with underlying conditions that were further compounded COVID-19. He was a known COVID-19 case and was previously admitted to the U.S. Naval Hospital Guam.
“To his family and friends, Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I send our sincerest sympathies and condolences. May his memory be a blessing to all those who knew him,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Nothing, not even time, will make the pain of losing a loved one completely disappear; however, we can honor their memory by putting the good of the community ahead of ourselves. Each of us are soldiers in this fight, and victory requires us all to remain vigilant. We are the frontlines, and I call on the people of Guam to do what is right.”
