Correction to: Infectious Diseases of Poverty (2019) 8:27

In the abstract of original publication of the article [1], 0.33 mg/L (24 h LC50 against B. alexandrina) should be replaced by 1.975 mg/L which was clearly showed in Table 1. We regret any confusion this error may have caused. The original publication has been corrected.
