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 but I'd

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

maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses

a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit

from each other. If you're interested feel free to send me

an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by

the way!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your

articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.

But think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your

posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics

and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.

Excellent blog!

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

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 unique.



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

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure

of your site? Its very well written; I love what

youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of

content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey there exceptional website! Does running a blog such as

this require a great deal of work? I've no knowledge of coding however I

had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.

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

Appreciate it!

Please let me know if you're looking for a article writer for your site.

You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset.

If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd absolutely love

to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back

to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Cheers!

Everything posted made a lot of sense. However,

what about this? what if you were to write a awesome title?

I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a title to maybe grab a person's attention? I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and note

how they create article headlines to get people to open the

links. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about

everything've written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
