HAGÅTÑA (JIC) —The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 32nd and 33rd Covid-19-related fatalities occurred Friday.

At approximately 6:45 p.m., a 92-year-old female with underlying health conditions passed away at the Guam Memorial Hospital. She was admitted to GMH on Aug. 27 and tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 upon admission. 

At approximately 6:59 p.m., a 56-year-old female with underlying health conditions passed away at the Guam Regional Medical City. She was admitted to GRMC earlier Friday and was a known Covid-19 positive case.

"Our island suffers with each passing, and making these announcements will always be difficult for me. We are reminded of the fragility of life and are forced to confront our mortality. Losing a loved one is always hard and the pain is incomprehensible. Not only did this virus take them away from us, it has taken away moments they should have shared with their family and friends beside them," said Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. "Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I express our deepest condolences and sympathies to the families who have lost so much. You remain in our thoughts and prayers."

Also on Friday, there were 29 new reported cases, five of which were identified through contact tracing. To date, there have been a total of 2,074 officially reported cases of Covid-19 with 31 deaths, 593 cases in active isolation, and 1,450 not in active isolation. Of those cases, 1,810 are classified as civilians and 264 are military service members.

The Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center has a Crisis Hotline that is available 24/7 at (671) 647-8833/4. For those feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed or are needing to talk to someone, GBHWC has experienced providers available and ready to assist the community with any heightened stress and anxiety experienced as a result of Covid-19.
