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.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all

is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% positive.

Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website.

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to

get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal.

I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer.

Excellent Blog!

Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little

lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or

go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused ..

Any ideas? Appreciate it!
