HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) — Guam’s seventh Covid-19 related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital on Friday evening, the Joint Information Center stated.

The patient was a 34-year-old male with underlying health issues which were compounded by Covid-19. He was on a ventilator at GMHA for more than three weeks. The patient traveled to Guam from Hawaii. He is Guam’s youngest Covid-19 related fatality to date.

“To this young man’s family and friends, Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I send our deepest condolences and sympathies,” Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero said. “Covid-19 has already taken so much from us in such a short period of time. Tonight, tell your family you love them and reach out to those close to your heart. As we mourn every life we have lost to this virus, our fight will continue.”

To date, there have been a total of 767 confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 7 deaths, 394 not in isolation, and 366 cases in active isolation. Of those cases, 634 are classified as civilians and 133 are military service members.
