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'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog

that's equally educative and entertaining, and

let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people

are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found

this during my hunt for something regarding this.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website.

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and

visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job

with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me

on Chrome. Excellent Blog!
