On 2020-07-31 a superspreading event most likely occurred in United Kingdom. 17 days later (2020-08-17) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 35 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 716 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 2020-08-21, 21 days after it started, with 32401 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-10-17.
