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.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said

"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put

the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside

and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL

I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need

some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out

pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure

where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?



Appreciate it
