  • a Based on the ccr and mec complex type only. SCCmec entries with mec complex class followed by ccr complex type are shown when an SCCmec type was not attributable because ccr and/or the mec complex class was nontypeable or when a not-yet-described association between ccr and the mec complex was found.

  • b I, infection origin; C, colonization origin.
