Abstract
The original publication of this article [1] contained few erroneous paragraphs and errors in Table 1 and Table 2. The first four paragraphs are in the 'Results' section while the last four paragraphs are in the 'Discussion' section. The errors in Table 1 involve the number of isolates tested for pyrazinamide and pyrazinamide susceptible isolates, ethambutol-susceptible isolates with a mutation and number of resistant isolates with a mutation for streptomycin. The error in Table 2 involves wrong codon number for a mutation in isolate KM17-01 in Cluster XII for gidB gene. The updated informations have been indicated in bold and also refer corrected Tables 1 and 2.
