It added that “the death toll now stands at four (4) with the recent demise of Mr Solomon Nsor, a senior staff nurse who worked at War Memorial Hospital in the Kasena Nankana Municipality of Upper East Region.”

It noted that “a number of the staff currently infected with the virus are nurses and midwives and there is therefore the need to test all staff at the hospital and proper measures to quarantine and treat those infected.
