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 issues

of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content

I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot

of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods

to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your post seem to be running off the

screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format

issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but

I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though!

Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks
