Superspread event

On 2020-05-05 a superspreading event most likely occurred in South Korea. 3 days later (2020-05-08) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 30 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 156 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 2020-05-12, 7 days after it started, with 648 sequences found in total.

The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-07-22.
