Nigeria Vom 1989
The strain was isolated from a bovine kidney obtained from the abattoir in Jos, Nigeria, and described by Ezeh et al. (1989) as a new serovar in the Pyrogenes group. However, in this publication no serovar name is given. Only the laboratory code number of the strain is given as vv 3 JA. But in the following paper by Ezeh et al. (1990) the serovar name nigeria is proposed. In this paper the strain name Vom is suggested, which should replace the laboratory code. The status of the strain has been confirmed by a RL. It is included in the attached updated list of serovars.
