(Tumon, Guam) Despite assurances from both Guam Homeland Security and Joint Region Marianas the past three days that there is no coronavirus infection or suspected infection on Guam, numerous sailors aboard a Naval ship docked at Apra Harbor are tweeting that their ship is on lockdown because of an infection concern.


The ship came from Japan.


Several tweets purporting to come from sailors on board complain of the Navy's decision to lock the sailors on board.


"[W]assup bitches. tweeting live from a piet in Guam and we can't leave the ship bc of corona virus lol yeehaw." - @laurensee9996 at 6:03 p.m. today

Another purported sailor took out his anger on the people of Guam, wishing Guamanians ill - literally:


"Guam definitely got me hella fucked up (four emojis punctuating) I hope all y'all get fuckin sick." - @jaay_swavely at 2:45 p.m. today

Kandit has reached out to both Jenna Blas with GHS and Captain Christian Hodge with Joint Region for comments on this matter. News releases from the past several days have been confirming to residents the absence of confirmed or suspected cases of the virus.


Sources within Andersen Air Force Base told Kandit last night that the heads of the various departments had an emergency meeting yesterday due to the concern of a possible virus infection aboard a Naval ship.
