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.

Hello, There's no doubt that your site could be having web browser compatibility

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!

I believe what you published was very reasonable. However, what about this?

suppose you were to write a awesome headline? I ain't saying your

content is not good., however what if you added a title to possibly grab people's attention?

I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is a little plain. You could

glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article titles to grab people to click.

You might add a video or a related picture or

two to grab people interested about everything've written. In my

opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was

curious what all is needed 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% certain. Any tips or advice would be

greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you

knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that

automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking

for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was

hoping maybe you would have some experience with

something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I have been browsing on-line more than three hours these days,

yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

It's beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material

as you did, the web shall be much more useful than ever before.

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog

that's both educative and interesting, and without

a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking

intelligently about. I'm very happy that I came across this during

my hunt for something regarding this.

Hi there fantastic website! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount of work?

I have virtually no knowledge of coding but I had been hoping to

start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips

for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just needed to ask.

Thank you!
