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.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to

give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.

Very good blog!

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured

I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe

guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility

but I thought I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great

though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks
