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.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your content seem to be running off

the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue

or something to do with browser compatibility but

I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though!

Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

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

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a

tough time making a decision 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 completely unique. P.S My apologies for

being off-topic but I had to ask!

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress

or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed ..

Any tips? Kudos!
