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.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

But think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts

click for more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the

best in its field. Great blog!

justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to

be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. 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 placed 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!
