Researchers in the U.S. have identified a new strain of E.coli bacteria that is associated with the spread of salmonellosis in the United States.
The researchers believe the bacteria may be linked to outbreaks of the coronavirus in California, Arizona, and the U,S.
Southwest and have identified the source of the outbreak as a pet food manufacturing plant in Arizona.
Researchers believe the E. coli bacteria could be linked in the recent outbreak to a manufacturing plant that makes pet food.
The new strain was identified through genetic sequencing.
“This new strain is a novel strain of Escherichia coli that has the capacity to infect people,” said lead author and microbiologist Dr. Christopher Mancini, a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
“We know it is a new E.
Coli strain and it has not been previously found in the environment.
It has not previously been found in human-to-human transmission in the US, and we believe this new strain will be a significant source of E coli in the coming months.”
The new strain has not yet been identified in other locations in the country, but Mancinis team has been conducting genetic testing of the new strain and has been able to identify its genetic similarity to E. Coli strains that are present in the wild in the Southern California desert.
There are no known cases of salivary-transmission of the E coli bacteria, and no deaths have been reported in humans from E.c. coli infections.
