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! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to

ask. Does building a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?

I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily

basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.

Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

Thankyou!

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for.

Would you offer guest writers to write content for you?

I wouldn't mind creating a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write in relation to here.

Again, awesome site!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious

what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a

blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not

100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly

appreciated. Appreciate it
