There is growing fear among workers of Tarkwa-Nsuta-based company, Ghana Manganese after a principal community officer died of COVID-19.

The Deputy Health Director in charge of clinical services in the Western Region, Dr Atsu Dordor who confirmed the news said sample of the deceased was taken last week but she died even before her results was confirmed to be positive.
