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.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of unique content I've either

authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it

up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content

from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

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 pictures or video clips to give

your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its

field. Great blog!
