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.

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

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting 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 being off-topic but I had to ask!

Hey there outstanding website! Does running a blog similar

to this take a lot of work? I have absolutely no knowledge of coding

however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

Anyways, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

I understand this is off topic however I just had to

ask. Thanks a lot!

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess

I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.

Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced

blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
