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 think that what you said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?

suppose you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content isn't solid,

however what if you added a headline that makes people desire more?

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

You might peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post titles to get viewers interested.

You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you've written. In my

opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
