    <p>Phylogenetic trees were constructed using the maximum likelihood method based on the Tamura 3-parameter substitution model. The countries in which the genotype has been detected are presented opposite the genotype, and the number of different individuals in which the genotype has been detected is provided in parentheses. The genotypes of each highly variable genomic sequence (HVGS) have intervened in 22, 13, 17 and 7 different combinations, respectively.</p
