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.

Howdy fantastic website! Does running a blog like this require a massive

amount work? I have virtually no expertise in programming but I was hoping to

start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any

ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply had to

ask. Many thanks!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot

of it is popping it up all over the web

without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off?

I'd really appreciate it.

I think what you said made a bunch of sense. However, consider

this, suppose you were to write a awesome

title? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid., however suppose you added something that grabbed a person's

attention? I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal

is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo's home

page and watch how they write news titles to grab viewers to open the

links. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what

you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more
