Determination Of Prevalence, Antimicrobial Resistance Assessment And Screening Of Virulent Genes Of Escherichia Coli In Ready-Made Meat Products And Traditionally Fermented Milk From The Form

ABSTRACTEscherichia coli is a common gastrointestinal enterobacteriaceae that contaminates food resulting in food poisoning. Due to prolonged exposure to antibiotic therapy in their livestock hosts, E. coli continue to develop antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Most E. coli strains are commensal but may attain virulence genes through horizontal gene transfer. A cross sectional observational study was carried out to determine the total E. coli count in polony, beef burgers and traditionally ferme...

Maintenance Of Government Office Buildings In Nigeria- A Post Occupancy Evaluation Approach
