  1. a The total number of samples was 1942
  2. b Total counts of the pathogen identified including mixed growth and single growth / counts of the single pathogen growth (percentage of total counts of each species divided by the number of 104–5 CFU/ml - culture positive (109) or ≥ 105 CFU/mL- culture positive(248))
