Uncommon serotypes confirmed this month were Salmonella Orion (14 human cases since it was first confirmed in New Zealand in 1993) and Salmonella Uganda (21 human cases since it was first confirmed in New Zealand in 1994).


Due to COVID-19 effect on overseas travel and habits of the community post lockdown, there has been a downturn in the number of Salmonella samples.
