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.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.

I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries

that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the

top and defined out the whole thing without having side

effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be

back to get more. Thanks

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright

violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive

content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of

it is popping it up all over the web without my

agreement. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from

being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

I have been browsing on-line greater than three

hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and

bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
