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 think what you published was actually very logical. However,

what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title?

I am not suggesting your information is not good., however suppose you added something to

maybe grab a person's attention? I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page

and watch how they create news titles to get viewers to

click. You might add a related video or a related

picture or two to get readers interested about what you've got to say.

In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.

browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your web site in Safari,

it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some

overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Besides that, fantastic website!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be

really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
