HAGÅTÑA (JIC) — The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 104th Covid-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Memorial Hospital at approximately 2:36 p.m. Saturday. The patient was a 57-year-old female with underlying conditions that were further compounded by Covid-19. She was admitted to GMH on November 5, 2020 and was a known positive case.

“Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I extend our sincerest condolences and sympathies to her family and friends,” said Guam Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “As the pandemic continues to test our limits, supporting one another becomes more important than ever. If you know someone struggling, I encourage you to reach out and see what you can do to help. This virus is isolating but it doesn’t diminish the importance of human connection.”

To date, there have been a total of 6,476 officially reported cases of Covid-19 with 104 deaths, 1,942 cases in active isolation and 4,430 not in active isolation.

As of November 21, 2020, the Covid Area Risk or CAR Score is 15.7 and will be recalculated once reports from all participating labs are up to date through the weekend. The CAR Score accounts for the incidence of new cases, how well current testing identifies these cases, and the rate of spread. An ideal CAR Score for Guam would be 5.0 and below.
