Correction to: Urogenital schistosomiasis elimination in Zanzibar: accuracy of urine filtration and haematuria reagent strips for diagnosing light intensity Schistosoma haematobium infections

Correction to: Parasites & Vectors (2018) 11:552 https://doi.org/10.1186/s13071-018-3136-6

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors flagged that unfortunately an error had been introduced to the Conclusions section of the article’s Abstract, during production of the article.

The original and wrongly published section reads as (*see the error in bold):

  • “We found that many individuals infected with S. haematobium in Zanzibar excrete > 5 eggs per 10 ml urine (…)”

However, it should read as (*see the correction in bold):

  • “We found that many individuals infected with S. haematobium in Zanzibar excrete less than 5 eggs per 10 ml urine (…)”

The original article has now been updated to correct this error.

The publisher apologizes for the processing error.
