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 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!

Today, I went to 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 totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG

editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!
