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.

Heya outstanding website! Does running a blog like this

require a lot of work? I have absolutely no expertise in programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners

Thank you!

I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable.

However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier

post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added

a title to maybe get people's attention? I mean Add new comment |

EAC RCC Portal is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news

headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related video or

a picture or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say.

In my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.

problems. Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however,

when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you

a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic blog!
