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.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really

something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking

forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page

layout of your blog? 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 2

images. Maybe you could space it out better?
