“I can’t get my blood pressure medication or diabetes medication, and I can’t get my insulin, and I can’t get my insulin, so the food is limited, so I have to eat cup noodles and the boxed lunches that the Sunban Hotel gives me.”
Most of the tourists are staying in the resort, but the electricity and water have been cut off, adding to their suffering.
The airport is expected to reopen on the 30th at the earliest, but it could be later depending on how the damage is repaired.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is stepping up consular support to minimize the impact on local residents and tourists.
We have sent our consular officers to each resort in Guam to request their cooperation to ensure that our tourists have no inconvenience in extending their stay.
We have also arranged for Korean-American doctors to provide urgent medical support, focusing on emergency patients.
