Among the isolates, serogroup C comprised 31.1%, B 24.4%, S.typhi 15.6%, D 13.3%, A 8.9% and E 6.7%. Among the isolates, 71.1% were resistant to tetracycline, 68.9% to ampicillin, 66.7% to cephalothin, 57.8% to trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole, 53.9% to kanamycin, 46.7% to chloramphenicol and less than 31.8% of the isolates were resistant to other drugs.
