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 written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks

like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without

my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from

being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to

be at the web the easiest factor to take note of. I say to

you, I certainly get annoyed while people

think about concerns that they just do not know about.

You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also

defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.

Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
