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.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give

your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if

you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would

have some experience with something like this. Please let

forward to your new updates.

I think everything said was very logical. But, think

on this, suppose you were to create a killer headline?

I am not suggesting your content is not solid, but suppose you added a title

that makes people want more? I mean Add new comment

| EAC RCC Portal is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and note how

they create news headlines to get viewers to click.

You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers

interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it might make your posts

a little livelier.

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established

blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not

sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?

Thank you
