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 all. Nevertheless

just imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your

posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could certainly be one of

the greatest in its field. Very good blog!

I think everything typed made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose you composed a catchier title?

I am not suggesting your content is not solid., but suppose you added something

that makes people want more? I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is a

little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people to click here for more.

You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about

what you've written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a

little livelier.

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but

I'm having a hard 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 completely unique.

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

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of

plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique

content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do

you know any solutions to help prevent content from being stolen?

I'd truly appreciate it.

I've been surfing online greater than three

hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any interesting

article like yours. It's pretty value enough for me.

In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the

internet will likely be much more useful than ever before.

You really make it seem really easy with your

presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually something that I feel I would by no means

understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast

for me. I'm having a look forward in your next submit,

I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most

blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

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