“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!

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.

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!
