The original version of this article [1] unfortunately contained a mistake in the section entitled “Nucleotide sequence accession numbers”. The accession numbers of two housekeeping genes (clpX and pyrG)used in this study were wrongly provided. KR078446-KR078647 should read KU512980 - KU513181 and KR079456 - KR079657 should read KU513182 - KU513383.

The correct text is provided below:

Nucleotide sequence accession numbers

The partial sequences of the 11 MLST loci used in this study have been deposited in the GenBank/EMBL databases under accession numbers KR078648-KR079455,KR079658-KR080061,KP224504-KP225109, KU512980 - KU513181 and KU513182 - KU513383.
