On 2021-02-01 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Sweden. 35 days later (2021-03-08) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 39 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 188 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 2021-03-12, 39 days after it started, with 27261 sequences found in total.

The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2021-04-14.
