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 whether it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your site.

It looks like 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 too?

This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had this

happen before. Many thanks

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes

are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

Kudos!
