Figure HKW-2. Rates of macrolide resistance for streptococci by age groups, 2012-2017

  1. The susceptibility data for the following number of isolates were analyzed: S.pyogenes (562), S. agalactiae (5208), Group G streptococci (1128) and S.pneumoniae (992).
  2. Non-susceptible isolates from all specimens.
  3. Nonsusceptible include both intermediate and resistant. Erythromycin was tested and used as an indicator for resistance to macrolides (e.g. clarithromycin, azithromycin)
