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.

First of all I would like to say great blog!

I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing but Check it here

just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or

copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive

content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot

of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission.

Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped off?

I'd really appreciate it.

thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they

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

is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty

penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be

greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
