Written by Jeremie Charfauros on January 4, 2022
Chairman of the Physician’s Advisory Group (PAG), Dr. Nathaniel Berg (MD) speaks to Patti with an update on COVID-19 as it relates to Guam. Dr. Berg discusses a rise in COVID-19 positive cases post the Christmas and New Year holidays, which saw not only an increase in social gatherings, but visits from family and friends from off-island as well. According to Dr. Berg, the issue no longer lies in contracting COVID-19, rather it is in protecting the island community of Guam from having to be hospitalized as a result of COVID, which Berg says can be achieved by getting vaccinated and receiving the COVID-19 booster shot.
