Table 2 Analysis of the geographical Inter and Intra-continental matches between the shared-types found within 1 or 2 settings (endemic types n = 824) and localized types (n = 564), within and between the 8 macro-regions. The geographical analysis of the matches between localized types found in 3 macroregions and 5 settings or more (n = 246) and between the ubiquitous types (found in more than 3 regions (n = 284) was not done. Number of intra and intercontinental matches between STs detected between the 8 macro regions previously defined.
