No Covid-19 cases at Naval Hospital, Navy says


There are no Covid-19 infections tested at the U.S. Naval Hospital Guam, Navy officials said, clarifying earlier reports that four people tested positive.

“The report of four confirmed positive Covid-19 test results at U.S. Naval Hospital Guam was inaccurate. There are currently no positive Covid-19 cases at U.S. Naval Hospital Guam,” reads a press release from the Joint Region Marianas.

The report, which the Navy said was “erroneous,” was attributed to Jaciyn Matanane, spokesperson for Naval Hospital Guam.

U.S. Naval Hospital Guam Commanding Officer Captain Maria Young clarified that there are no current cases of Covid -19 at the naval hospital.
