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.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be

running off the screen in Internet explorer.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with

internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter

and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put 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 totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

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.

Here is my blog post :: K pop
