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.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative

and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to try this.

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

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not

very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do

you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
