Correction to: Isolation and genetic characterization of Toxoplasma gondii in Spanish sheep flocks

Correction to: Parasites & Vectors (2020) 13:396 https://doi.org/10.1186/s13071-020-04275-z

Following the publication of the original article [1] the authors flagged that, unfortunately, there are errors in Table 3 and Additional file 1: Table S1.

Table 3 Summarized data on adult sheep myocardial tissue sample collection in authorized slaughterhouses in central and western Spain (2018)

In Table 3, the animal origin (province) of the isolate TgShSp30 was listed as Sisante (Cuenca); however, this isolate originates from Alburquerque (Badajoz). Likewise, the animal origin (province) of the isolate TgShSp27 was listed as Alburquerque (Badajoz); however, this isolate originates from Sisante (Cuenca). Additionally, the ELISA IRCP value for the serum sample of the animal from which isolate TgShSp27 was obtained is 83 instead of 86.7.

In Additional file 1: Table S1, the location of origin of the isolates TgShSp27 and TgShSp30 was mistaken in the same way. In addition, the proportion of no. infected mice/no. inoculated mice, should be changed from 2/3 to 1/3 in the case of TgShSp30, and from 1/3 to 2/3 in the case of TgShSp27 isolate.

The corrected versions of Table 3 and Additional file 1: Table S1 are provided in this correction. The authors apologise for the inconvenience caused.
