Two workers at a Tesco store in Greenock have died following a suspected outbreak of coronavirus.
The colleagues were members of staff at the Tesco Extra on the town’s Dalrymple Street.
Tesco confirmed the deaths on Saturday and said the company was supporting colleagues but would not comment on individual cases.
The Greenock Telegraph reported that staff have been left devastated after the man and woman both became seriously ill and passed away within a few days of each other.
The news comes as a further 93 coronavirus deaths were recorded in Scotland in the past 24 hours.
That is the joint highest number of deaths recorded in a single day since the pandemic began after 93 deaths were also reported on Friday.
