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.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest

authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a

lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each

other. If you're interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by

the way!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I

thought I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though!

Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog

that's equally educative and entertaining, and

let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people

are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found

this during my hunt for something regarding this.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website.

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and

visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job

with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me

on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.

It appears like some of the written text within your content are running off

the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know

if this is happening to them as well? browse around this site

may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before.

Thanks

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.

Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?

A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not

operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
