On 2020-06-09 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Australia. 46 days later (2020-07-25) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 53 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 228 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 2020-08-02, 54 days after it started, with 9341 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-08-28.
