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.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or

copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive

content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot

of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.

Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?

I'd really appreciate it.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest

thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they

just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top

and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all

is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty

penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be

greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

I'd certainly appreciate it.

May I just say what a relief to discover someone who genuinely understands what they are discussing online.

You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

A lot more people need to read this and understand this side of your story.

I was surprised you aren't find more information popular given that you definitely have the gift.

Howdy! click this link 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 fast. I'm thinking about

setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you

have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
