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 there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I

had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take

a large amount of work? I'm brand new to operating a blog however I do write

in my diary daily. I'd like to start a blog so

I can easily share my own experience and views online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

Can I simply just say what a relief to discover someone that genuinely knows what they're discussing online.

You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and

make it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of

the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you

certainly possess the gift.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of

this website. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and

appearance. I must say you've done a excellent job with this.

In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.

Superb Blog!

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

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

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web

browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

The style and design look great though! Hope

you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My website has a lot of completely unique content I've

either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of

it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.

Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off?

I'd truly appreciate it.

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but

I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about

creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips

or suggestions? Thanks

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to
