Three COVID-19-Related Fatalities Reported

The Joint Information Center (JIC) was notified of three (3) previously unreported COVID-19-related fatalities which occurred earlier this year in March, September, and October.

 

  • The 256th COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital (GMH) on March 10, 2021. The patient was a 90-year-old male, unvaccinated with underlying health conditions. He tested positive on February 8, 2021.

  • The 257th COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC) on September 30, 2021. The patient was a 74-year-old female, unvaccinated with underlying health conditions. She tested positive on September 18, 2021.

  • The 258th COVID-19-related fatality occurred at GRMC on October 23, 2021. The patient was an 83-year-old female, unvaccinated with underlying health conditions. She tested positive on September 11, 2021.

“Jeff, Josh, and I send our prayers to their families and friends,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “As we work toward getting more vaccinated in the community, including our children, we look forward to any decline in hospitalization numbers and of course, tragic deaths. While many people are able to recover with no issues, we must protect our most vulnerable by helping to stop the spread of this virus with our continued efforts.”

On Tuesday, November 9, 2021, the JIC reported one COVID-19-related fatality as unvaccinated. The JIC was later informed the patient was vaccinated. The correction follows: The 252nd COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the U.S. Naval Hospital (USNH) on November 5, 2021. The patient was a 72-year-old male, vaccinated with underlying health conditions. He tested positive on November 1, 2021.

SPECIAL NOTE: Based on today's data, if we were to compare two (2) hypothetical populations of 100,000 people each, vaccinated versus unvaccinated, there would be 14 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 175 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 13 times higher for the unvaccinated as compared to the vaccinated.

*Population is based on the 2018 Statistical Yearbook. Pending population update.
