Mass gatherings pose a threat to the spread of antimicrobial resistant E. coli strains

Abstract


The results of antimicrobial sensitivity test of E. coli recovered from human samples indicated that 29/29 strains (100%) were resistant to tetracycline, naldixic acid, ampicillin, trimethoprim, neomycin, oxytetracycline, sulpha-methoxazole trimethoprim, erythromycin and 25/29 strains (86.2%) were sensitive to colistin sulfate. On the other hand, 57/57 (100%) poultry strains were resistant to oxytetracycline and streptomycin, 7/57 (12.3%) were resistant to gentamycin while 100% were sensitive to colistin sulfate. The results also record a severe diversity in the antimicrobial
