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.

Howdy superb blog! Does running a blog like this take

a lot of work? I have virtually no knowledge of coding

but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.

Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.

I know this is off topic but I simply had to ask.

First of all I want to say awesome blog!

I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out

there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured

I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links

or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects

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

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

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