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.

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with

your site. It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else

please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

This could be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before.

Have you ever thought about including a little

bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and

everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great

graphics or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this

blog could definitely be one of the very best in its field.

Very good blog!

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem

to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this

is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has

a lot of exclusive 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 agreement.

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

I'd truly appreciate it.

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I

was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking

at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or

vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

Hey! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work?

I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.

I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips

for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

It's beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers

made good content as you probably did, the net shall be a lot more

useful than ever before.
