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 was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less.

I've been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and

am nervous about switching to another platform.

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

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
