dc.description.abstract The estimated global burden of STEC (Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli) is 2,481,511 illnesses, 269 deaths, and 26,827 DALYs with 48% of these being foodborne. This thesis provides information on STEC diagnostic strategy, undetected STEC in a tertiary referral hospital in Cape Town, and the virulence and antimicrobial resistance properties of tellurite resistant diarrheic E. coli isolated on CHROMagar(TM)STEC (CHROMagar Microbiology, Paris, France). Deploying the One - Health surveillance approach to study selected diarrheic bacterial pathogens in an informal settlement setting, this study sheds light on the extent of bacterial foodborne pathogens in human and non-human sources. en_ZA
