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.

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say,

I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still

new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for

beginner blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Have you ever considered about adding a little

bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.

However think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be

one of the greatest in its field. Very good blog!

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

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe

guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a

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

If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.

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

Unquestionably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to keep in mind of.

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while folks consider

concerns that they plainly don't know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Great site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any

message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?

I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

Kudos!

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

I'm going to start my own blog in the near

future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and

Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs

and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
