n = number of isolates analysed; § to exclude genotypes that were virtually identical one member of each isolate pair matching at 8 or more of the 10 loci was removed (2 isolates in N’Zerekore, 3 in Boke; 1 in Forecariah, 1 in Farafenni, 4 in Greater Banjul and 1 in Richard Toll); NS P > 0.05, not significant; * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.01; *** P < 0.001.
