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.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into

any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of unique content I've either

authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet

without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from

being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate

Awesome website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of

I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that

share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks a lot!
