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 don't mind.

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

prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my

thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing

however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are

lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

Cheers!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any

issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website

has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems

a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content

from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Today, I went to the beach 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

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!

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and

amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the

nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently

about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my

search for something concerning this.
