On 2020-12-15 a superspreading event most likely occurred in New South Wales. 0 days later (2020-12-15) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 43 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 46 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 2020-12-21, 6 days after it started, with 160 sequences found in total.

The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2021-01-01.
