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.

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

First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like

to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center

yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble

clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how

to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
