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.

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured

I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?



My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by

the way!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do

you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?



A handful of my blog audience have complained about my site not working

correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this

problem?

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. 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 put 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 totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think of if you added some great

images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your

content is excellent but with images and clips, this site

could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.

Terrific blog!

Can I just say what a relief to find an individual who

really knows what they're talking about on the net. You certainly

understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.



More people have to check this out and understand this side of your story.

I was surprised you aren't more popular because you definitely have the gift.

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a lot

of work? I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.

Please let me know if you have any recommendations or

tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Excellent blog you have here but I was wondering if

you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics

discussed here? I'd really like to be a part of

online community where I can get responses from other experienced people that

share the same interest. If you have any recommendations,

please let me know. Thank you!

What i don't understood is actually how you are now not actually a lot more neatly-preferred than you may be now.

You are so intelligent. You understand thus significantly in relation to

this topic, made me for my part believe it from numerous various angles.

Its like women and men don't seem to be interested except it's one thing to accomplish with Lady

gaga! Your individual stuffs great. Always care for it up!
