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!

With havin so much content do you ever run into

any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or

outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.

Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off?

I'd really appreciate it.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and everything.

Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great photos or

videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent

but with pics and videos, this website could undeniably be

one of the best in its niche. Amazing blog!
