  • a The designation, amount of viral genomes/ml sample, and genotypes of HAV in samples from patients with the indicated week for HAV diagnosis in Gothenburg are given, together with the genotype of one strain found only in sewage in week 5. In addition, the nucleotide similarity of the strains to other HAV strains is listed, along with the week when the strain was also found in sewage.

  • b ND, not determined.

  • c Last week of sampling.
