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.

You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make

it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of your story.

I was surprised you're not more popular since you certainly have the gift.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems

of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is

popping it up all over the internet without my

permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against

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

Hi, I believe your website could possibly be having web browser compatibility

problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,

if opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues.

I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!

Apart from that, fantastic blog!
