Kenya takes to Senegal suspected monkeypox samples for testing

Samples taken from people suspected to have monkeypox in Kenya have been ferried to Senegal for testing and further investigation, the Nation has learnt.

The Ministry of Health on Friday cleared the samples to be flown there since the country’s testing capacity is limited given the rarity of the disease.

“The test is done using an antigen and since as a country we don’t have the capacity to test, we had to take them to a country that has dealt with the outbreak before and their laboratories are certified,” said a Ministry of Health official who sought anonymity.

The official said should the test turn positive, then the ministry will have to budget for the testing materials and also ensure that we are able to test for the virus.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe and principal secretary Susan Mochache did not respond to our calls and messages on the issue.

You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find

this matter to be actually one thing that I feel I would by no means understand.

It kind of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me.

I'm looking forward in your subsequent post, I'll attempt to get the grasp of it!

With havin so much content do you ever run into

any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My

blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all

over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions click to get info help reduce content from

being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal.

I must say that you've done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera.

Exceptional Blog!
