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.

Wonderful website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?

I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get comments from other

experienced individuals that share the same interest.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask

if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you

center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15

minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.

Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this

site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to

get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual

appeal. I must say that you've done a amazing job with this.

Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.

Exceptional Blog!

Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring

writers? I'm hoping to start my own website

soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free

platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there

that I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

I do not know whether it's just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with

your blog. It looks like some of the written text

on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
