Original Text

“Similarly, the incidence of HUS in our study was 6.79 per 100 000 < 10-year-olds, compared with 0.29 per 100 000 ⩾10-year-olds,”

Correction

Original Text

“Individuals ⩾60-years-old have a slightly higher incidence of HUS (0.58 per 100 000) than 10–59-year-olds (0.26 per 100 000), and E. coli O157:H7 outbreaks have occurred in nursing homes [24], making this age group of particular interest,”
