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! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance

from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?

Appreciate it

I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you

ever run into any internet browser compatibility

problems? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.

Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does managing a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?

I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.

I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share

my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind

of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Appreciate it!

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another

platform. I have heard excellent things about

Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts

into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick

question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested

to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas

out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it

just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost

simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

This is the perfect web site for everyone who wishes to find out about this topic.

You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will

need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a

subject that's been discussed for many years.

Great stuff, just excellent!
