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.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself

or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping Check it out up all over the web without my

permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen?

I'd truly appreciate it.

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing

a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe

we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
