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 believe everything typed made a great deal of sense.

However, what about click this link?

what if you were to create a killer headline? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website,

but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?

I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is kinda vanilla.

You should glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post titles to grab

people interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers

excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
