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 problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced

but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know

any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I'd

truly appreciate it.

I'm really loving the theme/design of your web site.

Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

Hey there excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this take a

massive amount work? I've absolutely no understanding of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog

in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog

owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I simply needed to ask.

Many thanks!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any

widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet

my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this

for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your

blog and I look forward to your new updates.
