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.

Greetings, I believe your blog could possibly be having web

browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari,

it looks fine however when opening in IE, it has some

overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Aside from that, fantastic website!

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

Today, I went Skip to content the beach with my

kids. 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 entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had

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

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting

my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing

but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes

are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep

a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost

moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.

I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!

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

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

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