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.

Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be

on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other folks think about worries that they just don't recognize about.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the entire

thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal.

Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy I came across this in my search for

something relating to this.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my

own weblog and was curious what all is required to

get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or

advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for

a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..

Any ideas? Kudos!

Please let me know if you're looking for

a author for your blog. You have some really great posts and I believe

your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
