Three COVID-19-related Fatalities Reported
The Joint Information Center was notified of three (3) COVID-19-related fatalities:

 

  • The 220th COVID-19-related fatality was pronounced dead on arrival at the U.S. Naval Hospital (USNH) Guam on October 13, 2021. The patient was a 4-month-old male. 

  • The 221st COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC) on October 14, 2021. The patient was a 64-year-old male, vaccinated, with underlying health conditions. He tested positive on September 24, 2021 and was admitted on September 29, 2021. 

  • The 222nd COVID-19-related fatality occurred at GRMC on October 14, 2021. The patient was a 21-year-old female, unvaccinated, with underlying health conditions. She tested positive upon admission on September 28, 2021. 

 

“As a mother and grandmother, I cannot think of a greater, more excruciating pain than the loss of a child. In times of mourning, saying goodbye to anyone is never easy, but saying goodbye to a sweet infant is truly devastating,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Jeff, Josh and I offer our heartfelt sympathies and prayers for all those who have lost loved ones and that our community be ever mindful that this horrible disease touches us all, especially the most vulnerable and defenseless.”

 

DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE. Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. Seek emergency medical care immediately or call 911 if you have trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face.
