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 thought about adding a little bit more than just your

articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

However think of if you added some great images or videos

to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be one

of the greatest in its field. Very good blog!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I've

either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my

authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from

being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required

to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours

would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so

I'm not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be

greatly appreciated. Cheers

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave Check it here to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched

her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off

topic but I had to tell someone!
