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 amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and interesting,

and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently

about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something

relating to this.

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

It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance"

between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a great job with this.



Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer.



Exceptional Blog!
