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.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however

, I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe

guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog

discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm

looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic

if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found

a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter

and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."

She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a

hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
