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.

Hi there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?

I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary

daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience

and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips

for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to

be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware

of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don't know

about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the

whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first

comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum

it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying

your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.

Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?

I'd certainly appreciate it.
