 For the first time, the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) annual report includes whole genome sequencing (WGS) data of bacteria from people with antibiotic-resistant Salmonella infections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report finds that 9.3 percent of Salmonella showed multidrug resistance, a number similar to the previous year and one that has remained stable over the past 10 years. An interactive web tool for viewing data is also available.
