Antibiotic resistance in Salmonella and Campylobacter bacteria is still high based on the latest European figures. The data covers 2019 to 2020, according to a report published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Levels on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Salmonella and Campylobacter and indicator bacteria from humans, animals and food are collected annually by the 27 EU member states and analyzed by EFSA and ECDC. Reporting was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic affecting laboratory resources, the number of isolates, and the UK no longer being an EU country.
