Table 2 Proportion of infection per region

From: Molecular identification of Mycobacterium bovis from cattle and human host in Mali: expanded genetic diversity

Sample provenance Number of examined cattle (%) Number of Positive (M. bovis) by microscopy and (%) Number of Positive (M. bovis) by liquid media culture (%)
Kayes 75 (11.1) 1/75 (1.33 %) 1/75 (1.33 %)
Sikasso 160 (23.7) 4/160 (2.5 %) 4/160 (2.5 %)
Segou 80 (11.9) 0/80 (0 %) 1/80 (1.25 %)
Mopti 140 (20.7) 4/140 (2.86 %) 5/140 (3.57 %)
Bamako 220 (32.6) 7/220 (3.18 %) 8/220 (3.63 %)
Total 675 16/675 (2.37 %) 19/675 (2.81 %)
  1. The estimated prevalence (stated) as proportion of infection of M. bovis was 2.37 % (16/675) by microscopy and 2.81 % (19/675) using the liquid media culture. The gold standard test is liquid media culture. There is disparity among regions, the highest prevalence (culture) was in Mopti (3.57 %) and Bamako (3,63 %) and the lowest was in Segou (1.25 %)
