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.

Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused ..

Any suggestions? Kudos!

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.

Hello, There's no doubt that your web site might be having browser compatibility problems.

Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E.,

it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

Aside from that, excellent blog!

My developer is trying to convince 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 Movable-type on a variety of websites

for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a

way I can transfer all my wordpress content into Check it out?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
