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.

Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're working with?

I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers

and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a fair price?

Many thanks, I appreciate it!

First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a

quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear

your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing

my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just

seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established

blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where

to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

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

massive amount work? I have absolutely no knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow,

should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.

I know this is off topic however I just needed

to ask. Cheers!

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

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness

and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a

awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads

very quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless just

imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

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

could definitely be one of the best in its field.

Good blog!
