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.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform

you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard

time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

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

I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

hello there and thank you for your info – I have definitely picked up anything new

from right here. I did however expertise some technical points using

this site, as I experienced to reload the website many times previous

to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering

if your web host is OK? Not that I'm complaining, but slow loading

instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your high

quality score if advertising and marketing with

Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and could look out for much more of your respective exciting content.

Ensure that you update this again very soon.
