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.

Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog similar to

this take a great deal of work? I've absolutely no understanding of coding but I had been hoping to start

my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or

tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is

off topic however I simply wanted to ask. Thank you!

May I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody that genuinely knows what they are talking about

online. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it

important. More people ought to look at this and understand this

side of the story. I was surprised you're not more popular since you definitely have the gift.

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 internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly

appreciated. Kudos

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I

was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
