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.

With havin so much written content do you ever

run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping

it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help

reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to

.net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for

about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

I have heard very good things about Is there a way

I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was

curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a

blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so

I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
