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.

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for

about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Howdy, I think your web site could possibly be having browser compatibility

issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,

when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping

issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Besides that, great blog!

Admiring the hard work you put into your website and detailed information you present.

It's good to come across a blog every once in a

while that isn't the same outdated rehashed information.

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 me know if you run into anything.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Review my web blog; Hugh
