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 have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if

all web owners and bloggers made good content as you

did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to

ask. Does building a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?

I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily

basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue

or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
