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.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts

more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could certainly be one of

the best in its field. Excellent blog!

I think everything published made a great deal of sense.

However, consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?

I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean Add new

comment | EAC RCC Portal is a little vanilla.

You should look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article titles to grab people interested.

You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you've got

to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?

I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and

I'm looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
