Abstract

The spread of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VREfm) hasbecome a challenge to health care infection control worldwide. In 2015, a markedincrease in VREfm isolation was detected in acute public hospitals in Tasmania. Wereport here the draft whole-genome sequence of a newly designated VREfm sequencetype, sequence type 1421 (ST1421).
