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.

First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself

and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a

difficult 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 wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions

or hints? Many thanks!

I've been browsing on-line more than three hours today, but I never

discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners

and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net might be much more helpful than ever before.
