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.

Hello there, I do think your blog could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues.

When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks

fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.

I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

Aside from that, great blog!

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

I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless just

imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give

your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but

with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.

Amazing blog!

Good day! click this link is kind of off

topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out

pretty fast. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start.

Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and

let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few folks are speaking

intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I found

this during my hunt for something regarding this.

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a

difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and

Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and

style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever

run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks

like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

Do you know any techniques to help protect against content

from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?

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 do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.

It appears as if some of the text within your posts are running off the

screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had

this happen previously. Thank you
