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 don't know if it's just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your site.

It appears as if some of the written text in your posts are

running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know

if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

Cheers

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to

ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center

yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the

first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

Thank you!
