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.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and all. But

think of if you added some great graphics or videos to

give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with

pics and clips, this website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.

Great blog!

Howdy! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your

site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from

my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

If you have any recommendations, please share.

With thanks!
