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 was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of

content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only

having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Take a look at my blog post: 뉴스

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering

issues with your site. It appears as though some

of the written text in your content are running

off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let

me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a

issue with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

Many thanks
