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.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but

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

Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at

alternatives for another platform. I would be great if

you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. 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 placed 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 completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe

guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?

My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and

I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
