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.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this

blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard

to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal.

I must say you've done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads

very quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's

both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've

hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently

about. I'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something

concerning this.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched

her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
