On 2020-09-19 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Hong Kong. 64 days later (2020-11-22) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 64 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 139 genomes that are one-step mutation with respect to the core genome (a proxy for secondary transmissions). The signature for the likely superspreading event ends at about 2020-12-01, 73 days after it started, with 457 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2021-01-06.
