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.

Greetings! Quick question that's totally off

topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might

be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

Appreciate it!

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

I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless

think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this

site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.

Awesome blog!

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your site.

with my web browser because I've had this happen before.
