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.

Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own blog 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

options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips?

Thank you!

Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed

to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require

a lot of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do

write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog

so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.

Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

Appreciate it!

this topic to be actually one thing which

I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very huge for me.

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.
