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.

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.



Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing

a blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the

same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had

to ask!

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net

the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people

consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed

to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole

thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come

across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing,

and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.
