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.

First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like

the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or

tips? Kudos!

The other day, while I was at work, my sister

stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop,

just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.

I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with

someone!
