Figure 3. Seasonal distribution of multilocus sequence typing clonal complex in human cases of campylobacteriosis reported in the first 12 months of the study period, by residence in A) Fylde and Wyre (rural) and B) Salford and Trafford (suburban). The number of typed isolates reported during 4-week intervals was converted to incidence by using annual population estimates. The 8 most commonly reported complexes are distinguished, with cases from all other complexes presented as "other." The incidence of "all cases reported" (typed and untyped) is presented for reference (solid line).
