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.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and

gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed

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 entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I think that what you posted made a lot of sense.

However, what about this? suppose you were to write

a awesome title? I am not suggesting your content isn't good, but suppose you added something to

maybe grab folk's attention? I mean Add new comment |

EAC RCC Portal is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's

home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links.

You might add a related video or a related pic or

two to grab readers excited about everything've got to say.

Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
