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 everything said made a great deal of sense.

However, what about click this link?

suppose you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a title to possibly get a person's attention? I mean Add new comment | EAC RCC Portal is

a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they

create post titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a

related pic or two to grab readers excited about

everything've written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a

little livelier.
