 The number of people infected at Guam base in the United States increased to 37 and a large number of contacts


According to the report, the commander of the 36th wing of Anderson Air Force Base in Guam, Jin Terry W. Powell, confirmed the latest number of infected people at a press conference on the afternoon of the 22nd. The novel coronavirus pneumonia has been infected by 37 soldiers at Anderson air force base. The infection is mainly divided into two parts. Some of them are air force personnel arriving in Guam in May 25th. They first stayed in the Melia Coral Hotel in Guam. The public health department has identified 74 close contacts, including 7 hotel staff, who will be tested for virus.

The U.S. Air Force personnel were previously restricted to hotels and Anderson air force base, but there may be violations. Mr. Powell said an investigation was under way to determine where the problem was, and that soldiers will be held accountable if they fail to comply with public health regulations.

Powell also said that the positive soldiers isolated at the Guam Naval Hospital (possibly the infected carrier on the previous Roosevelt aircraft carrier) had never contacted the air force personnel of the Coral Hotel on the island of entry. At present, all 37 Air Force personnel tested positive were isolated at Anderson air force base.

In April and may, the local outbreak in Guam has been a cause for concern, because the U.S. Navys Roosevelt aircraft carrier docked here, with more than 1100 crew members infected and one dead. At present, Roosevelt has left Guam for deployment.
