  • a The percentage corresponds to the proportion of isolates that have that specific sequence type in the entire collection (217 isolates).

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

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