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 there would you mind stating which blog platform

you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm

looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

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.

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

Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it click to find out more my 4 year old daughter

and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed

the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit

crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be

really something which I think I would never understand.

It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the

hang of it!
