  • a The total number of positive isolates for all countries is shown in parentheses for each of the carbapenemase/carbapenemase combinations. blaOXA-51 is intrinsically found in A. baumannii and was detected in all but one isolate from Portugal (2009); that isolate was identified as Acinetobacter pittii (formerly Acinetobacter genospecies 3) based on rpoB sequencing.

  • b —, no strains from that site were processed in that year.
