Neonatal meningitis Escherichia coli (NMEC) is the second leading cause of neonatal bacterial meningitis worldwide. We report the genome sequence of the multidrug-resistant NMEC serotype O75:H5:K1 strain mcjchv-1, which resulted in an infant’s death. The O75 serogroup is rare among NMEC isolates; therefore, this strain is considered an emergent pathogen.
