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 was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of

your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got

to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way

of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two

images. Maybe you could space it out better?

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required

to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost

a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
