Two more test positive for Covid-19; Guam now has 5 cases


Two more patients were tested positive for Covid-19, bringing to five the total number of cases on Guam.

"The test results were made available late Tuesday afternoon. The preliminary investigation indicates that one of the recently confirmed cases has a familial connection to two prior confirmed cases announced on March 15, 2020. Today’s second unrelated case had recent travel history to the Philippines. All five confirmed cases are currently in isolation," the Joint Information Center said.

The Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services said the two were among the 20 individuals who were tested on Tuesday; 18 samples have been cleared.
