Human Salmonella isolates, 2022 No.06, June

The number of isolates (n=54) confirmed this month showed a slight decrease in comparison to the number of isolates confirmed in June 2021 (n=57). Salmonella Typhimurium ST19 (24.6% in June 2021 vs 20.4% in June 2022) was the most common serotype confirmed this month. Uncommon serotype confirmed this month was Salmonella Apeyeme (6 human cases since it was first confirmed in New Zealand in 2011). Salmonella Kintambo was confirmed for the first time in humans in New Zealand this month.

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.
