Superspread event

On 2020-03-06 a superspreading event most likely occurred in USA. 14 days later (2020-03-20) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 73 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 1438 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 2020-03-30, 23 days after it started, with 42009 sequences found in total.

The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-08-08.
